Charity of choice: Donda's House
Kanye has a long history of donating and giving back to people in need. In 2008, he teamed up with MTV and Sway for the "Choose or Lose" special and surprised veterans returning home from Iraq with various goods and money. Kanye also co-founded his charity, Donda's House, named after his mother who was also a huge advocate for philanthropy. Last year the organization teamed up with a church in Chicago to start the "Got Bars?" program, a 10-week music class which helped aspiring musicians write and record their own music.
