The hip-hop “legend” (or so says his website), is the driving force behind a very worthwhile foundation called the “Common Ground Foundation,” which he says aims to help people “strive for greatness in any and everything you do.” On April 16, the foundation is hosting a gala in Chicago where he will be honoring women who represent award-worthy leadership skills across generations including Dr. Maya Angelou, Keke Palmer, Dee Robinson Reid and Sherri Shepherd.
For those who can’t make it to the gala, or those who cannot afford the $250 ticket, or $2250 table, the donation drive has been opened up online, where everyone who donates can win different prizes based on how much they can afford to donate. PopEater report that fans who donate between $1 and $25 dollars can enter to win an autographed pic from the artist. Those who donate between $501 and $1,000 will be entered to win a phone call from Common and one lucky donor who donates more than $1,001 will be entered to win a chance to sit in on a studio session with the singer while he records his new album.

Sounds like a very worthwhile cause, and a once in a lifetime opportunity to be in the company of some very inspiring women!
