Big Sean is the latest in a league of stars bringing more attention to the Flint, Michigan, water crisis. Today, the Detroit native, in collaboration with his Sean Anderson Foundation, announced  #HelpHealFlintKids, a fundraising plan benefiting children affected by the city's lead infested drinking water.


Sean is gathering donations through the online community funding website Crowd Rise. To get the ball rolling, the "Play No Games" rapper put up $10,000 of his own money.

"Flint's children were hit the hardest and some have experienced permanent and potentially devastating health defects from lead poisoning," reads a statement on the fundraising page. “We know the needs of Flint children exposed to lead, particularly those most vulnerable – children ages 0-6 – are ongoing and long-term.

“You can be assured that your gift will be used for critical interventions today and well into the future.”

Sean is offering fans extra initiative to give back. A $10 donation earns an automatic entry for a chance to see him at a U.S. tour date this fall (the more you donate, the more chances you have to win). Five lucky winners will receive two VIP concert tickets, plus a meet and greet and photo-op with Sean.

All donations will support the Flint Child Health & Development Fund.
