T.I. launches homeless war vets' campaign

T.I. is teaming up with a military veterans' charity to launch a new global humanitarian campaign supporting homeless war heroes.

The Whatever You Like hitmaker will speak at the GIVE Like A King campaign opening at the refurbished Veterans Empowerment Organization of Georgia (VEO) on Friday (14Dec12), which runs a 60-bed transitional housing facility for military veterans.


T.I., real name Clifford Joseph Harris, Jr., will front the campaign, which includes radio, television, Internet, print and billboard advertising, to raise funds and awareness for the cause.


The VEO, based in Atlanta, Georgia, is an organisation that helps provide shelter, food and support services for homeless military veterans.


The rapper said, "We have to have someone else's back, not just our own."
