Cham was inspired after being a part of the relief work in Port Arthur, Beaumont and Orange in the Lone Star State. After witnessing the horrific devastation across the towns, he started the Robin’s Heart Foundation to provide more basic essentials to their residents.
“Just like so many other people out there, I don’t want to sit on the sidelines, I want to do the most that I can to help,” Cham says on his website. “I will be investing a lot of my own personal time and money to help, but there are so many people impacted by the flooding that I can’t help feeling like I need to try my best to do more.
“I’m sure there are plenty of other campaigns that will do great things for the people who have been impacted by Hurricane Harvey,” he adds. “But I want to focus on a lot of the families and areas that I feel have been extremely overlooked.”

Chamillionaire has donated $25,000 of his own money toward the charity and has promised that all of the money raised will go to those in need, with no administrative fee.
The Robin’s Heart Foundation will be taking all everyday necessities and items for the hurricane victims. You can ship or deliver them to 6006 North Freeway, Houston, TX 77076.
