CELEBS GIVE BACK: Diddy DONATES $250,000 To TEEN Entrepreneurship Group
Entertainment mogul Sean "Diddy" Combs donated $250K to a group that supports teens entrepreneurs. Find out more about the donation and the NFTE inside....
Yesterday, REVOLT TV's Sean "Diddy Combs made a special appearance at National Youth Entrepreneurship Challenge at The Times Center in New York City.
The "Challenge" was created by The Network for Teaching Entrepreneurship (NFTE), an organization that empowers teens through entrepreneurship education. At the event, the four finalists, Juny Nguyen, Jesus Fernandez, Dagim Girma and Toheeb Okenla (shown atop) received a coaching session from Diddy.
Jesus Fernandez and Toheeb Okenia, from South Holland, IL beat out 38 teen competitors with their business plan for T&J Soccer which centers on a manufacturing/retail business that sells soccer socks with pockets sewn into them for inserts that protect players' shins during soccer games.
Diddy gifted the NFTE with a check for $250,000 in support of their good works. He tweeted, I'm here w/ @NFTE supporting our young entrepreneurs of tomorrow!! It's an honor!! #trepsTo whom much is given much is expected ! Thank God 4 Hip Hop ! #GiveBack
The $500 mill media mogul hit up "The View" today to talk about the teen entrepreneur program. And he says he feels like he's ready to take the responsibility of what it means to be Hip Hop's #1 cash king. And that means, he's helping to rear up the new batch of multi millionaires.
And when Babs Walters asked him why he still isn't married, Diddy got a little shy but admitted that he's waiting until he's ready to be able to give a woman everything she needs. We heard that as when he's ready to stop being greedy with women.
At least he's honest...
