TeeRoy's 2 Cents:
- There's something about helping others that just warms your heart.
- What's $8000 to someone on Cardi's level?
- Does she want a pat on the back? Why not just give anonymously and be humble about it?
When the story about the death of the young man from the Bronx made headlines, Cardi was moved to the point where she donated $8000 to a crowdfunding campaign set up for Junior. The campaign has raised over $150,000 so far to cover funeral expenses and help support the family.
Cardi wrote on Instagram, "#JusticeforJunior -- these Bronx streets are ruthless. What pisses me off the most is that these Bronx cops be harassing the [crap] outta people when they see a boy bleeding to death and ask what happened?”
Cardi also posted an Instagram video where Junior’s mom, Leandra, thanks her for the donation. Cardi wrote, “Sheesh this made me tear [up] and made me feel soooo special like I feel mad special.”
