Chance the Rapper puts his money where his mouth is — especially when it comes to showing love for his hometown.
The son of Chicago earned the praise of Eddie Vedder for his philanthropic efforts in the Windy City, as Chance has donated a cool million to Chicago's public schools and given back to its communities in various ways. Now he's participating in another initiative that benefits the youth of Chicago by encouraging organizations to get involved — and get funded for Chi-centered projects that make the city a better place in the process.
With Chicago Beyond, Chance — along with Liz Dozier, the organization's managing director — announced that the "think tank of ideas" is accepting submissions for initiatives that focus on benefitting Chicagoans between the ages of 13-25. Those interested can submit 90-second videos that detail what kind of organizations and projects they'd like to launch to "positively affect the city of Chicago." (More more information on the Go Innovate Challenge, click here.)
If you've been super-inspired by Chance's bottomless enthusiasm for giving back to Chicago, now's your, well, chance to follow in his footsteps and potentially launch an initiative of your own.
CORRECTION: Initially, we reported that anyone can submit ideas for Chicago beyond; only nonprofit organizations can participate, and we've made the correction in the copy above.
