Won’t he do it!
23 unexpected inmates were bailed out of DeKalb County Jail for Easter thanks to T.I. and Love and Hip Hop Atlanta’s Scrapp DeLeon.
On Easter Sunday (Apr. 21), 23 nonviolent and first-time offenders, were bailed out of DeKalb County Jail in Georgia due to an initiative launched by New Birth Missionary Baptist Church of Lithonia, Georgia and backed by the efforts of Tip and Love & Hip-Hop Atlanta star, DeLeon.
“I was ecstatic. I was shocked. I broke down and cried,” Tyron Pollard told Fox 5 News, expressing his emotions of hearing the news he’d be home for Easter.
New Birth launched the “Bail Out” program during Lent and had hoped to raise $40,000 by Easter.
However, once T.I. and DeLeon became involved, donations poured in and the church was able to raise $120,000.
The program doesn’t just stop with posting bail.
The 23 Easter recipients—seven women and 16 men—as well as any future recipients, will each be connected with a certified mentor for weekly check-ins. And portions of the donations will be designated for college savings for children of former inmates. – Via Gossiponthis
