It’s evident from the way that Game acts around his own kids that he adores children, and when he recently heard about the shooting death of a young girl in California, the news hit him so hard he offered to pay $10,000 for her funeral costs. The rapper posted the above photo to his Instagram account with the story of how six-year-old Tiana Ricks was gunned down in Moreno Valley, CA, and why he felt compelled to help her family. Read what he wrote below.
This very sad story hit me in a place nothing ever has. The picture above is of 6 year old “Tiana Ricks” who was gunned down in Moreno Valley this past weekend holding onto her fathers leg as men approached & opened fire wounding both Tiana & her father…. Tiana did not know she was shot & kept asking was her father okay until 2 1/2 hours later when lil Tiana was passed away just after midnite on Sunday… I read about this story here in Australia & immediately tracked down her mother @lost_the_love_of_my_life & noticed her & the family trying to raise $10,000 for funeral costs…. So I got her on a 3 way with my accountant & now I’m in the process of transferring $10,000 from my account to hers !!!!! Follow her now @lost_the_love_of_my_life & show her support thru this tough time…… Prayers are definitely needed. My sincerest condolences to you & your family Marquia. Glad that I could be of some help….. I don’t know what else to say, but @therobinhoodproject got you !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! #TheRobinHoodProject
This is one of many charitable contributions Game has been making lately as part of his Robin Hood Project. His plan is to donate $1,000,000 of his own money, he says, “to people around the world just because I feel like it!”
