Quincy Jones, Tyrese, QD3 Team Up


I read this and I think this is awesome! Producer Quincy Jones and his son QD3 have teamed up with Tyrese Gibson to launch the "5 Million Kids National Education Campaign".
All three are doing this by partnering with Operation HOPE, which is a Los Angeles based non-profit that provides economic and educational tools for youth advancement. I really appreciate the goal in mind. They are aiming to teach 5 million children, parents and teachers how to get rich legally through financial literacy. Within this they will encourage our youth to take better interest in school activities as well as open 50,000 new bank accounts for the “unbanked” and “under banked” using the proceeds of the EITC benefits. Quincy Jones stated, “It takes 20 years to change a culture,” He continues, “We’ve spent the last 20 years making dumb sexy.”
