What a fab thing to do!
Will.i.am is a judge on the U.K. version of The Voice, and was paid pretty handsomely to do so.
Here's the thing, though: Will.i.am knows he has enough stuff.
Because of that, he has decided to give his entire fee to charity! 500,000 Euros are going to disadvantaged young people in London through The Prince's Trust.
Here's what he said:
"I don't need any more luxury items. And equipping our young people with education and inspiration is real homeland security.
"I grew up seeing kids selling drugs at 11 and getting pistols and things they shouldn't be doing. My life could have turned out very differently. But I was encouraged to dance, sing by my mum and teachers… that changed my life."
Absolutely wonderful, Will.i.am!
We're sure all of that will be going to kids who deserve it, and will be SO thankful!
Keep it up, we love hearing about it!
