Earlier this week, Big Sean addressed the situation in Flint, Michigan—where the water supply is contaminated—on Twitter. "Flint I love you, Im sorry you have to deal with this tragedy!" he wrote. "This is a state of emergency n I have been seeing how me n my family can help. This is not a natural disaster, this is not a mistake, this is clearly some real dirty work going on! unacceptable! Explain Governor?"

Today the MC, who grew up in nearby Detroit, announced the #HealFlintKids fundraiser to help raise money for those affected. "I'm raising money to support the kids of Flint Michigan," the project's website reads. "Toxic water in Flint has rendered the water undrinkable and put the entire city in a state of emergency. Flint's children were hit the hardest and some have experienced permanent and potentially devastating health defects from lead poisoning. We know the needs of Flint children exposed to lead, particularly those most vulnerable—children ages 0-6—are ongoing and long-term. You can be assured that your gift will be used for critical interventions today and well into the future."

You can donate here. Sean is not the only rapper looking to help: yesterday, TMZ reported that Meek Mill sent 60,000 bottles of water to Flint.
