If you thought that Chance The Rapper was done with his efforts to help children in Chicago get the best education, you were very wrong. Chance is still at it and today (October 10) he found a new partner in his mission, the ride-sharing company, Lyft.
Lyft announced today that they will be donating coins to the artist’s New Chance: Arts & Literature Fund in a clever way. Lyft users can donate by rounding up their fare via the Round Up & Donate feature. Lyft will then automatically take the nearest dollar made and donate it to the cause. Resources for the foundation are designed to counter the city’s declining graduation rates with art programs and helpful resources for students.
Since its launch in May, Round Up and Donate has partnered with organizations like the ACLU, USO, Girls Who Code, Habitat for Humanity and World Wildlife Foundation. Other celebs with charities in the program include Nicki Minaj, Demi Lovato and Laverne Cox.
