Lil Wayne And Karen Civil Give Back To Haiti For The Holidays.

On Friday, December 18th, Karen Civil
teamed up with Lil Wayne to bring some
holiday cheer to over 500 students in Haiti.
The Christmas celebration was a partnership
with Live Civil and Weezy’s Trukfit,
Scholastic Corporation & L’union Suite During the Live Civil Christmas Giveaway,
students were given outfits from Lil Wayne’s
Trukfit clothing line and an exclusive Live
Civil Thinking Cap from Karen Civil’s
partnership with New Era. In addition to gifting the young thinkers with
a few new clothing items to celebrate the
holidays, Haitian-American professional
boxer Andre Berto, surprised the kids by
dressing up as Santa Claus and passing out
toys! Although the Christmas Giveaway excited
the young children with new toys and
clothes, it did not deter from the original
message of the Live Civil playground and
school remodeling; which emphasizes the
importance of literacy, education and fun. The United States’ largest children’s
publishing company, Scholastic Corporation,
donated a book to each of the 500 children,
while Karen Civil did a live reading of her
new book, Be You & Live Civil. “A lot of people tend to forget about those
who are less fortunate during the holiday
season, not many understand how receiving
just one item could bring so much joy to a
child’s life, especially if they don’t have the
same everyday luxuries that the more fortunate tend to overlook. I’m just grateful
to be able to give back to Haiti in any way
possible,” said Lil Wayne. Karen was able to fund her Live Civil
Playground in Pétionville within Port-au-
Prince, Haiti with the help of various notable
hip hop celebrities. Since then the Haitian-
American entrepreneur has expanded the
educational playground by remodeling the middle school located near her playground.
As a first generation American, Karen has
always felt obligated to go back to her
parents’ home to give back. “The Live Civil initiative in Haiti is
something that brings me joy! Being able to
put a smile on the kids faces during the
holidays is a gift within itself,” stated Karen. With 2016 vastly approaching, Karen will
continue to help expand the Live Civil brand
through the United States and abroad. In
addition, Karen Civil recently released her
first book, Be You & Live Civil available
now.
