Our favorite boxer/actor/Broadway performer has something wonderful up his sleeve — he has just announced his children's charity, Mike Tyson Cares! It's going to be launched on December 7t, just in time for the Holiday!
The charity and Mike Tyson's mission is to “give kids a fighting chance” by offering innovative centers that provide for the comprehensive needs of children from broken homes. We think this is a fab and necessary program, for sure. It will kick off with a star-studded gala at Las Vegas hotspot TABU on December 7th, 2012 — and all the proceeds from the event will benefit the Shade Tree Foundation as well as Awakenings.
Both of those programs also help needy children, and more awesomely, directly in the Las Vegas local community!
Here's what Mike said:
“I am very proud to launch Mike Tyson Cares Foundation. I want my legacy to be about charity and helping children. This is my start.”
If you want to go and help out, you should nab some tickets HERE. If you want to a once-in-a-lifetime chance to sit ringside with him at the December 8, 2012 Pacquiao vs. Marquez Fight in Las Vegas, go HERE!
We can't help but be so happy around this time of the year — everyone is in the giving spirit, and it leads to some incredible happenings!
