The Breakfast Club held their annual #Change4Change fundraiser on November 21. The famous collective (Angela Yee, DJ Envy, and Charlamagne Tha God) hit the airwaves, galvanized the people and collected more than $670,000 for Historically Black College & University scholarships through the Thurgood Marshall College Fund.
The event inspired Meek Mill, who has been working with his billionaire friends on a community educational upliftment plan of his own, to announce his plans on Twitter:
“Since they got like 30 abandoned schools in Philly …. can we buy one and build a super school in our own neighborhood! I hang wit a lot of billionaires that really care about education .. “all we need is one school to start!”
Philadelphia 76ers partner Michael Rubin is one of those billionaire friends. He was among many, many celebrities, politicians, entrepreneurs and concerned community activists to donate to #Change4Change.
Rubin and Meek have a plan to donate millions of dollars to Pennsylvania public schools as part of an initiative to improve educational opportunities and resources for underserved kids.

Rubin announced his $125,000 contribution during a recent appearance on The Breakfast Club. Originally he pledged $100k, but he upped the ante by saying if DJ Envy and Charlamagne Tha God agreed to wear a Philadelphia Seventy-Sixers jersey once a week on the Power 105.1 radio and Revolt television show, the owner would donate that money.
