Dec. 2 (UPI) -- Eminem is hoping the donations that his fans make this holiday season won’t be slim (or shady) and has vowed that the Marshall Mathers Foundation will match all donations up to $100,000 given to Wolverine Human Services.
WHS, which operates out of the rapper's home state of Michigan, has the mission of "helping children to be victors."
The deadline to make a donation and have it matched by Eminem is 11:59 p.m. Tuesday and the charity had almost $7,000 in donations as of Monday afternoon. WHS has offices in Saginaw, Vassar, Flint, Warren, Detroit and Taylor.
Here’s information about the challenge:
“The Marshall Mathers Foundation will match all donations up to $100,000 given to Wolverine Human Services on #GivingTuesday, December 3rd!! We need your help TODAY! Spread the word on Facebook and Twitter. Talk to your friends and neighbors. Tell them that they can help save the children of Detroit and Michigan by supporting Eminem's #GivingTuesday challenge!And then come back tomorrow, December 3rd, for a chance to win one of nine autographed prizes from Eminem!”
Prizes include a signed PS4 with Call of Duty Ghosts, a signed copy of Call of Duty Ghosts and a signed “Marshall Mathers LP 2.”
