From Hip Hop to Give Back. Rashaad Lambert started out as a rapper. In fact he can't quite shake his nickname "Spit" which for those not in the know is just another word for rapping. But Rashaad has a family history of contributing to the community and now for the third year he's sponsoring the Philadelphia INTER-COMMUNUNAL GIVEBACK FEAST on Saturday, December 21st, 2013, 11:00 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. Each year the Giveback travels to support a different section of Philadelphia in need; this year’s event will take place at Vare Recreation Center (2600 Morris Street, Philadelphia, PA, 19145) in South Philly.
I always love meeting positive people - and I count Rashaad among them. I had some brand new coats to give him when he stopped by the station and he's still looking for donated seasonal clothing and contributions. Find out more about the event in my interview
and it's not too late to contribute. http://fnd.us/c/7efe6. All proceeds will support the Lutheran Settlement House & the Bethesda Project.
