Tory Lanez’s Quarantine Radio Gives Back
Back in May 2020, Tory used the popularity of his Quarantine Radio to do good. Lanez launched his Dream City Fund to benefit COVID-19 relief efforts.
The fund is a collaboration between The Dream City Project, which he founded with his father in 2012 to help inspire and mentor youth, and the Dream Center, a Los Angeles-based charity. Together, they will raise money to provide meals and diapers for underserved families in Los Angeles and other communities nationwide. To kick things off, Lanez has pledged to cover the cost of the first 50,000 diapers, which Amazon Music has promised to match. (CNN)
Lanez also came forward to speak on the importance of using his platform to help families get through the entire nation going into shutdown as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.
Speaking to CNN from Los Angeles last week, Lanez said he felt compelled to assist struggling families because it wasn’t too long ago that he was struggling himself.”It’s very important for any artist to give back because at some point you were regular, too. At some point, you were a regular person just like everyone else,” Lanez said. “I always tell artists people feel exactly how you (felt) when you were in that place.” (CNN)
