Church Bails out 16 People for Easter with Fundraising Support from Rapper T.I. and Actor Scrapp Deleon

Newsweek reported on the efforts of Atlanta’s New Birth Missionary Baptist Church to raise money in partnership with rapper Clifford Joseph Harris Jr., known professionally as T.I., and actor Scrapp DeLeon from VH1’s Love and Hip Hop. The funds raised were used to bail out people incarcerated on nonviolent charges from local prisons ahead of Easter Sunday.

With a goal of raising $40,000, the fundraising collaboration between T.I., Deleon and the New Birth Missionary Baptist Church ended Lent with $120,000 donated to the Bail Out program, which they used to bail out 16 men and seven women serving time for nonviolent crimes, reported Fox 5.

Moving forward, the Bail Out program will help the beneficiaries with development and provide financial support so that their children can attend college.
