Michigan native Big Sean is joining rapper Meek Mill and singer Cher in ensuring the people of Flint have access to clean water.

Flint’s polluted water crisis recently hit the headlines and many celebrities have stepped up to help residents of the town.

Rapper Big Sean is now teaming up with bosses at fundraising website CrowdRise to raise money for the city through his Sean Anderson Foundation.

The star has pledged $10,000 (GBP7,035) of his own money, according to

Launching the #HealFlintKids initiative, he said, “I am devastated by the water crisis that has put the entire city of Flint in a state of emergency. In recognising the great work that the Community Foundation of Greater Flint Michigan has been doing, it is my hope we can help by raising the money needed to ensure that the children who have been hit the hardest receive the care that they need today and well into the future.”

Anyone who donates at least $10 to the fundraiser will be entered into a contest with a chance to win VIP tickets to a Big Sean concert in 2016 and he will meet five of these lucky winners backstage.

The campaign will run until 30 April (16). Sean is the latest member of the hip-hop community to take notice of what’s happening in Flint – Meek Mill has donated $50,000 (£35,171) to Flint Child and Family Health Development Fund and sent 60,000 bottles of clean water to the area on Wednesday (20Jan16), while rap mogul Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs has announced plans for a “water drive” with officials at fitness drinks brand Aquahydrate, of which he is a part-owner, alongside actor Mark Wahlberg.

Cher has also teamed up with bosses at Icelandic Glacial to donate over 181,000 bottles of water to the city’s residents.
