Last night, Ne-Yo (posing above with Monyetta Shaw and their kids Madilyn Grace Smith and Mason Evan Smith) was a Do Gooder along with the Boys & Girls Club of America.  He and his celeb friends had an evening of giving that touched the lives of nearly 500 underprivileged children.

Ne-Yo's mom, Loraine Smith, oversees the Compound Foundation.  (This is a positive post so we will stick to the script, OK.....)

He recently spoke about his mom, revealing how she inspired his sense of giving. 

"She is the person who taught me if you are given blessings you can be a blessing to someone else, and if you can help – you help. It’s not about cameras flashing or someone patting you on the back, it’s not about what you get in return, it’s simply about helping because it’s the right thing to do."

Awww.

During a recent interview, Ne-Yo was asked about his rewarding work with the organization, "Just the looks on the kids’ faces and knowing that I have given a kid who didn’t have a reason to smile, a reason to smile."
