The Game and his oldest son Harlem are raising money for a police officer in Arkansas.
The rapper and his son are aiming to get $50,000 for Tommy Norman, an officer in the city of Little Rock.
The pair set up a GoFundMe page after The Game talked to Harlem about the difference between “good cops and bad ones”. “I was touched by how active he is in the black community where he polices,” the Game wrote on Instagram, after Harlem found his website.
Good morning world…… So as I told you yesterday, I had conversations with my oldest son @hvrlemtaylor about good cops & bad ones & he did his research & found officer @tnorman23’s page & i was touched by how active he is in the black community where he polices. My son said, how does he help all of these kids & stuff, is he rich ??? I said I don’t know if he’s rich but sometimes it doesn’t take much to help those in need son…… Being that my son is on vacation with his mother visiting relatives in Atlanta, Arkansas & Louisiana he wanted to do something for officer @tnorman23 in Little Rock so he delevoped a #GoFundMe to try & raise $10,000 so that officer @tnorman23 can stuff his trunk with toys, goodies, food & other things to help him continue contributing to the kids & people in Little Rock Arkansas….. (& BEFORE SOMEONE NEGATIVE PUTS IT IN THE COMMENTS BELOW, YES I COULD’VE GIVEN THE 10K MYSELF BUT THAT WOULDVE STOLEN THE JOY OUT OF MY SONS IDEA & HIS COMMITMENT & DEDICATION FOR SOMETHING & SOMEONE HE FELT TOUCHED BY). But as I type, I AM GOING TO DONATE THE 1st $1,000 !!!!!!!! Not only am I proud of my son for taking initiative, I’m thankful that I’ve raised him with such a pure heart regardless of the negativities he’s seen me over come…… So please CLICK THE LINK IN MY BIO & donate anything as small as $1 to the officers mission & together we will help a good soul continue being a super role model for other law enforcement & a life saver for the children of tomorrow…… As soon as the $10,000 goal is reached… The funds will then immediately be transferred from my @therobinhoodproject account by my charity’s manager @ilndprncss to officer @tnorman23. “It takes a village to raise a child” & this good cop is going the extra mile for a lot of young African American children… #BlackLivesMatter to more than just #BlackLives #AGoodSonForAGoodCop #StayCommitted [Tag as many people to this post as you can & FOLLOW officer @tnorman23 NOW….. I’m really amazed by what he is doing !!!] again… PLEASE CLICK THE LINK IN MY BIO & contribute ANYTHING you’d like… Let’s see @hollywoodunlocked & @theshaderoom post this
Norman is a white police officer who serves a mostly black community in Little Rock. As Rolling Stone reports, he writes on his own website: “If you can just take two minutes out of the day to go out and make a difference, whether checking on your neighbor if they’re elderly, cutting someone’s grass, or hold the door for someone.
“It’s really just act of kindness and I think acts of kindness coming from a police officer means that much more to people because that’s not something you’re used to seeing.”
The aim of the GoFundMe page is to provide Norman with better tools to serve the community. One such example is “purchasing and delivering items such as snacks, drinks, and toys for him to keep his trunk stocked for the kids.”
The GoFundMe page has already reached its target of $50k, but is still accepting donations.
