"The Christmas season is all about giving and finding joy in making others happy. Helping those that are less fortunate than ourselves. We should do this without hesitation because it does not have to involve money or material things but only our time and consideration. This is what the Ludacris Foundation is all about. So many area families are having a tough time keeping the lights on due to this tough economy. We are trying to communicate to these children through our efforts that someone cares about you! That I care about you! That’s what this time of year means for me” said Ludacris.
“Every child is receiving a toy and coat. While it’s wonderful to see smiles when they receive the toys, as a parent I am most grateful that thru the Ludacris Foundation’s LudaCares Warm Coat, we are helping parents keep kids warm this winter” said Roberta Shields, President of the Ludacris Foundation.
"I have always believed charity starts at home. It means a lot to me to celebrate Christmas by blessing the community that has shown me so much support over the years. stated Ludacris.
