Megan Thee Stallion Foundation Benefits Charities in Houston Area
Megan Thee Stallion (real name Megan Jovon Ruth Pete) wants to make her parents proud.
While the “WAP” artist lost her father during her freshman year in college.
Her mom passed in 2019 of a cancerous brain tumor.
She credits them with instilling in her the need to give back to others.
And to honor them, the 27-year old recording artist has launched a nonprofit foundation called The Pete and Thomas Foundation.
Named after her parents, Joseph and Holly, The Pete and Thomas Foundation aims to help charitable programs.
According to the website, peteandthomasfoundation.org, the nonprofit’s mission is to catalyze resources to effect meaningful and positive change in the lives of women and children.
Be it health and wellness care, or helping the underserved communities in the Houston, TX area.
Additionally, while they are starting in Houston, the foundation aims to have their efforts ripple across the rest of the globe.
Megan calls her non-profit “one of the most significant endeavors” of her career in a press release –
“Launching the Pete and Thomas Foundation is easily one of the most significant endeavors that I’ll ever be part of in my career…”
“My family raised me to help others and give back, so I’m incredibly proud to be in a position to accomplish that goal.”
“I have a responsibility to use my platform to make a meaningful impact in the lives of those who may not have access to resources and support services.”
Via social media, Meg shared the news of her new venture in celebration of her birthday.
Also, she is celebrating in another way.
By surprising a senior citizen, a cancer survivor, and a student with financial assistance.
