Goldie Hawn Asks Fans To Help 50 Cent Feed African Children
Goldie Hawn is urging fans to support 50 Cent's mission to feed 1 million African children for World Food Day after striking up an unlikely friendship with the rapper.
The actress ran into 50 Cent during a lunch date in August and subsequently took to Twitter to gush about the "In Da Club" hitmaker.
She told fans, "Lunch was especially sweet today cause I met 50 Cent. His smile lit up the room."
Now Hawn is encouraging her online followers to back a good cause by directing them to the hip-hop mogul's Facebook page for his new Street King energy drink, the proceeds of which are going to benefit the United Nations' efforts to provide meals for hungry kids.
In a post on Twitter, Hawn writes, "In honor of World Food Day, 50cent wants 2 give 1M (one million) meals to kids. Give a meal 2 (sic) a child in need by liking StreetKing (on Facebook.com)."
World Food Day was acknowledged on Sunday.
Last month, 50 Cent revealed to WENN that he is aiming to feed a total of 1 billion African kids within two-and-a-half years - half the time of his original goal of five years.
He said: "I'm really serious about it (hunger relief). So far I've been able to feed 2.5 million (kids), but I wanna feed a billion. When I said I'd do it in five years, I was being really conservative. I'll do it a lot faster... I said five years because that's (the norm) when I create a business plan, but I think I can do it in half that time."
