The rapper shared a link on his Twitter page encouraging fans to donate money to a victims relief fund organized by the Manchester Evening News and British Red Cross. Em is known not to engage much on social media except for promotional purposes, which underscores how deeply the attacks have hit home for the Detroit rapper.
Eminem isn’t the only celebrity rallying for donations. Justin Timberlake also used his platform to spread the word. “Join me & donate to @BritishRedCross to help those affected by #Manchester attacks,” the popstar tweeted, along with the donation link.
So far, over £1,805,000—or $2.3 million—has been raised to assist families affected by the attack. This means campaign’s ultimate goal of £2 million is 90% complete. Ariana Grande has cancelled all of her Dangerous Woman tour dates through June 5th, but has promised to make a return to Manchester for a benefit concert which will raise money for the bombing victims. No acts or a date have officially been confirmed, though her team is leaning towards June 7th.
