In honor of United Nations World Food Day, Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson is once again stepping up to the plate, this time by challenging the world to help provide one million meals for hungry children in just one week.
From Monday, October 17 to Sunday, October 23, every time someone “Likes” 50′s new Street King energy shots on Facebook, (http://bit.ly/Hustleto1MM) he will provide a meal to a child in need.
In addition, Jackson will match the donation and provide a million more meals if the Like count reaches 1 million within the week.
“People who want to help fight hunger are not being asked to donate or pay anything to help. It’s real simple. All they have to do is Like the Street King page on Facebook and I will give a meal to a hungry kid,” said Jackson.
Once a user Likes the page, he or she will be encouraged to invite friends to do the same.
Jackson and Street King will work with the United Nations World Food Programme to fulfill the meal donation as they continue to fight hunger worldwide.
“The Street King movement is rapidly gaining momentum and we are making a difference in the lives of people around the world every day,” added Jackson.
“We’ve already given meals to millions of kids and have the power to give two million more in just one week. Each day we get closer to our goal of providing one billion meals over the next five years and helping end world hunger.”
Rap mogul 50 Cent may find himself the subject of a Security Exchange Commission (SEC) investigation over stock tips he gave out on Twitter.
50 made $8.7 million on Monday reportedly thanks to some tweets that he sent out to his 3.8 million followers, encouraging them to by stock in H&H imports, a company in which he has a stake. H&H Imports owns TV Goods—the company that owns the marketing rights to the Queens rapper’s Sleek by 50 Cent headphones.
The G-Unit CEO, who owns 30 million shares in H&H, reportedly helped pop the shares of the penny stock of H&H Imports, from .10 cents to .39 cents a share, earning himself $8.7 million in the process, according to the New York Post.
“There are very strict guidelines as to what a person can do in terms of possibly manipulating the value of a stock,” financial expert and 60-Minute Money Workout author Ellie Kay told FOX411. “I don’t think it would be a huge surprise to anyone if 50 Cent were investigated for what he did.”
According to an SEC rep, “we can neither confirm nor deny” an investigation into the Queens rapper’s stock tactics is taking place.
50 Cent has remained quiet on the situation, but the tweets in question have been removed and replaced with this:
“HNHI is the right investment for me it may or may not be right for u! Do ur homework.”
“I own HNHI stock thoughts on it are my opinion. Talk To YOUR Financial Advisor About It.”
