Such a nice gesture! These two were clearly very close friends.
As a further tribute to Nate Dogg, who passed away at the tragically young age of 41 earlier this month, Snoop has set up a trust fund for Nate's family "for expenses of services and the financial security of Nate's children. 100% of all donations will be given to Nate Dogg's family."
Snoop is accepting donations to the Nate Dogg Memorial Fund via PayPal, postal mail, or in person.
Very sweet of you, Snoop. We're sure his family sincerely appreciates it.
Will U donate to the Nate Dogg Memorial Fund?

A good time was had by all on Black Friday, especially retailers.
Between in-store and internet sales on the Friday following Thanksgiving, sales were up as much as 25% compared to last year's dismal holiday season.
Macy's CEO Terry Lundgren said over 7,000 early bird shoppers lined up outside the department store in Herald Square on Friday morning, up 40% from 2009.
Disney also proved to be a big winner, boasting internet sales on the 26th was their "biggest day in history".
Online transaction site PayPal also reported a 25% increase in sales on Thursday and Friday, mostly from "gadgets and toys".
Sounds like there's going to be a lot of happy kids this year!

Peter Thiel (left), co-founder of PayPal, is starting a grant program to encourage kids to start their own businesses.
Thiel does not believe that colleges teach kids enough about entrepreneurship. He is now offering 20 winners, under the age of 20, $100,000 grants to fund new business.
Thiel wants to be able “to encourage potential young entrepreneurs to get get involved in science technology.”
The start up cash is most often the problem for new businesses…but not for these 20 winners!
