Megan Thee Stallion Launches A Million Dollar Charity
Megan Thee Stallion marked International Women’s Day on Monday with a brand new charitable initiative called Women on Top.
The “Savage” rapper partnered with Fashion Nova to bring her $1 million campaign to life, which will support women seeking to improve their life, such as obtaining higher education or improving their business.
Submissions are now being accepted via the Fashion Nova Cares’ website, where Meg will comb through the entries and pick out applicants who will win a grant worth $25,000 or more.
“I’m so excited to announce that Fashion Nova and I are coming together on a woman empowerment initiative called Women on Top and we’re giving away $1 million in grants and scholarships all month to all the women,” the Grammy nominee said on Twitter.
The first $25,000 recipient was the YWCA in Houston, Meg announced, nodding to her hometown that was devastated by extreme winter weather last month — causing millions to lose their power and access to clean water.
Meg added that a new recipient will be highlighted every day throughout the month of March to help celebrate Women’s History Month.
This isn’t the first charitable outreach program the “Body” rapper has enacted.
She recently wrapped the Don’t Stop Scholarship Fund that assisted women of color seeking higher education and, over the summer, teamed with fellow “WAP” rapper Cardi B to hand out cash to women in need on Cash App — with #WAPParty becoming Twitter’s the largest cash giveaway.
