The Breakfast Club partnered with The Gathering for Justice Organization to run an 18-hour radiothon. The organization was founded by Harry Belafonte in 2005. It sponsors The Women’s March, Justice League NYC, and Colin Kaepernick’s Know Your Rights Campaign.
The people really came through for a good cause. Your favorite celebrities made very generous donations: Eminem donated $150,000, Diddy granted $100,000, and Kevin Hart gave $50,000. Other donators included Busta Rhymes, Dr. Oz, Safaree, Yandy Smith, Angela Rye, and many more. More importantly, the daily listeners donated from their hearts as well.
The radio show and organization both share a common goal to fight racial and social injustices and this event is an example of putting your money where your mouth is. DJ Envy, Charlamagne, and Angela Ye arrived at Power 105 at their regular scheduled time at 6:00 AM and stayed on-air until midnight. They were joined by Nick Cannon, Angie Martinez, Bernice Burgos, and other guests who were all donators as well.
Salute to the most dangerous morning show and The Gathering for Justice Organization for doing it for the culture.
