Megan Thee Stallion is celebrating her 27th birthday in a unique way, and it involves the artist's late parents.
On Tuesday, the Houston rapper announced the launch of her new organization named after her mother and father on her Instagram account. The Pete and Thomas Foundation, named after her late parents, Joseph Pete Jr., and her mother, Holly Thomas, is a non-profit organization focused on assisting underserved communities in Houston, Texas, her hometown.
"In celebration of my birthday, I'm honored to introduce the Pete and Thomas Foundation," Megan said. "@PeteThomasFDN is a non-profit organization focused on uplifting and assisting women, children, senior citizens, and underserved communities in Houston, Texas, and across the world. My parents raised me to help others and give back, and I'm incredibly proud to launch this foundation in their memory."
The 40-second video clip shows a young Megan with her parents as she discusses her desire to make her family and herself proud while trying to make a change.
"I really wanted to make my mom proud, I really wanted to make my grandma proud, wanted to make myself proud," Megan said. You know, how can I help something—like, what can I—what can I do you know…to make a change."
According to the official website, the foundation will focus on education, housing, health, and wellness, with programs that will provide scholarships, school supplies, and resources to support students in high-need communities. In addition, the organization will also help with housing issues for senior citizens single mothers and support mental health, cancer care, and food insecurity.
Megan's charitable efforts have empowered women and centered on elderly care, mental health, and education. In addition, proceeds from Megan's hit song "Savage" were donated to the Houston-based, non-profit organization Bread of Life to provide food, water, and other assistance to needy families during the COVID-19 pandemic.
