Drake Supports the National Bail Out Fund With $100,000 USD Donation

Supporting the protests against police brutality and systematic racism.

Following the tragic killing of George Floyd at the hands of the police, several celebrities, companies and public figures have began to speak up and providing support through donations, and Drake is the latest profile to join in. The Canadian rapper has just made a $100,000 USD donation to the National Bail Out fund following the widespread protests against systematic racism and police brutality across the USA.

Drake’s sizable donation came after an encouragement by Mustafa the Poet, who posted on Instagram tagging his “Toronto Kings” Drake and The Weeknd in the post, with an ask to match his $400 USD donation and adding three zeros. The money is going straight to The National Bail Out fund, which is an organization working to reunite families and building a community of leaders who have experienced incarceration, as well as working with people across the country to reform the current harmful systems that are in place.

For resources on how you can help and where you can donate, see our post here.
