When Chance the Rapper made a call-to-arms to every major company in Chicago and across the United States, someone finally answered the call of duty.

In a press conference this past Friday, March 31 at Paul Robeson high school, he revealed that the Chicago Bulls has matched his $1 Million dollar donation to Chicago Public Schools. In the same breath, he has also announced his New Chance Arts and Literature Fund which will partner with Ingenuity Inc. in an effort to seek out and provide financial resources to CPS schools “in desperate need of an arts program,” Chance said. Thank you Chance…..maybe if kids have some place to go after school they won’t get shot in the constant gang warfare on the the streets of Chicago!! We are at least glad the Chicago Bulls matched his gift, this young man has only been on the scene for a minute……how long have the Bulls been making money in Chicago?
