Megan Thee Stallion celebrated her birthday in true Aquarian fashion yesterday!
The 27-year-old revealed her Pete and Thomas Foundation on Feb. 15th in honor of her birthday, and she’s giving back in a unique way.
“In celebration of my birthday, I’m honored to introduce the Pete and Thomas Foundation. @PeteThomasFDN is a non-profit organization focused on uplifting and assisting women, children, senior citizens and underserved communities in Houston, Texas and across the world,” the rapper stated in an IInstagram post.
According to a press release, the foundation is a non-profit organization that raises awareness through campaigns and programmatic activities, with a primary focus on education, housing, and health and wellbeing.
The Pete and Thomas Foundation was founded by Megan to honor the memory of her parents, Joseph Pete Jr., and Holly Thomas.
“My parents raised me to help others and give back, and I’m incredibly proud to launch this foundation in their memory,” she explained.
According to the website, the charity’s goal is to provide resources for women, children, and senior citizens in underserved neighborhoods in Houston, Texas, and around the world so that they can make “important and good” improvements in their life.
“I really wanted to make my mom proud. I really wanted to make my grandma proud, wanted to make myself proud. You know, how can I help something? Like, what can I do to make a change?” Megan said.
The foundation will benefit children in high-need communities by providing scholarships, school materials, and resources in the education sector.
Meanwhile, the foundation will focus on housing concerns for senior residents, single moms, and families who have been affected by financial hardships or natural calamities.
The foundation will assist cancer care, mental health, and food insecurity in the health and wellness sector.
Megan was presented with the 18th Congressional District of Texas Hero Award last December, a distinction she dedicated to her late grandmother.
Megan accepted the medal from Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee.
“She taught me to be the woman I am today,” the 27-year-old expressed as she accepted the medal.
Now this is a way to ring in your 27th birthday! Congrats and happy birthday to our girl Megan.
