DETROIT, Aug. 17 (UPI) -- Detroit rapper Eminem lent his support to the non-profit organization Caps for Kids, donating signed baseball caps tabbed for child cancer victims.

Teen Hollywood said that the 33-year-old singer donated the hats after the organization approached him with a request to help provide support for children who have lost their hair due to the debilitating disease.

Legendary skateboarder Tony Hawk and actors Vin Diesel, Julia Roberts, Al Pacino and Brad Pitt joined the "8 Mile" star, whose real name is Marshall Bruce Mathers III, in supporting Caps for Kids.
