19 year old James Ward was homeless in LA for 4 years, now he is a student Howard University, thanks to social media crowdfunding.

After seeing a report on ABC7 TV, the legendary rapper Nas is helping a single father of eight kids get back on his feet. The musician was visiting D.C. this week when he saw a report on Stanley Young. The father and his kids were left homeless after a fire destroyed his apartment. Touched by the family’s plight, Nas  launched an online campaign to raise money for the Youngs.  So far Nasir Jones has raised $50k for the family.
