LeBron James recently announced the opening of his I Promise public school, and now it seems like other entertainers are looking to help. Kevin Hart recently revealed his charity has established a $600,000 scholarship fund for college students.
“Education and knowledge are powerful. I just wanted to do my part in providing opportunities for our future leaders, especially from my Philly hometown and show support for HBCUs,” Hart said. “This is just the beginning; trust me when I tell you there are a lot more kids who want to go to college who don’t have the money to make it happen.”
