Keri Hilson Rocks Ivory Coast; Donates To Orphanage

Published: Tuesday 3rd Jan 2012 by Sam

Say what you will about Keri Hilson, one can’t knock her charitable efforts.

The ‘Pretty Girl Rock’ singer flew out to Ivory Coast over the Holidays to perform. However, it was a visit to the La Caza children’s orphanage which touched the star most.

Speaking on the experience, Hilson told Okay Africa:

“Yeah, my favorite part by far was visiting La Caza — an orphanage for children who lost their parents in the civil war.  It was a really emotional experience and great to get to see the kids smile. For the holidays, I’m sending them over packages of bookbags, t-shirts, sunglasses, notebooks, and even an electric keyboard!”

—————————-

Kudos to Keri for using her star-power for a worthwhile cause. Not enough artists do.

    Well it’s good to see her doing something to help others. I hope she coninues to spread positive energy. Although I’m not a huge fan I’m not going to attack anybody who is giving back.

  4. TALK THAT FLOP January 3, 2012

    FLOP !!!

  5. MISHKA January 3, 2012

    Did she go to Ivory coast TWICE in a couple of months or is TGJ late on these news?

    Anyway, nice to see her giving back.

    Keri must have a man there because that’s the only place she seems to go.

    To Me Personally Keri’s the Most sweetest and humble person out there in the industry right now, how many artists do you come across sending gifts to orphans? Not so many, This touched me alot. It was very nice of her to do such thing, making the orphans Holiday something special simply because they were given such gifts. Keri has a caring and loving Heart, many people are on that bandwagon of bashing her on simple things, its time people recognize her for the nice things she has done. “Hands that give also receive”

    Great she did that, and im sure people respect her more…

    But happy she did this.

    Yep Keri with he sharp biting yet effortless mastery of all things shade has made my heart soar! The b**** is a shading legend and it’s only right I pay homage to her greatness in this field. You should too.

  12. kessa January 3, 2012

    i dont care if she gives shade or not.. and also very generous of her to donate. other rnb/hiphop singers should follow her example.

  13. zingarelli January 3, 2012

    Nice from her, such a big heart she is!
    P.S.I do think that LAX and THE GREAT LACEFRONCE are the same person, they all post H** HUSH/B**** STFU etc. etc.

  19. LAX January 3, 2012

    @riri

    She Looks a HOT MESS!!!!!

  20. Jessica January 3, 2012

    @LAX: First of all Rihanna career is dying now, LMAO!!! Her music is fast food music with meaningless tracks to the point all the real artists don’t give two shits about her, LMAO. SHE IS DONE!!! Until Rhianna produces for other artist and write her own music, she is s***!!! Her performances are crap to the point she has to show coothie to sell records now, that’s pathetic, that’s not talent. The only reason why she’s big because of CB and I’m not even a fan whatsoever. How come every minute she brings out an album she talks about CB AND NOTHING ELSE?? THEN SHOWS HER P**** TO SELL RECORDS?? LACKLESS TALENT POINT BLANK!!

    Anyways, good for Keri for doing this, people are so damn petty these days about people doing a good deed it’s pathetic. I have respect for her right there. Go Keri!!
