[VIDEO] Bing Summer of Doing with Keri Hilson, Far East Movement and Ludacris
Last week, Ludacris, Keri Hilson and Far East Movement helped celebrate the Bing Summer of Doing by volunteering alongside Bing, and DoSomething.org volunteers and students at Osborne High School in Atlanta, GA. The musicians participated in various projects to help restore and renovate the school, which is the oldest school in Cobb County with over 87% of the students eligible for free lunch.
All artists emphasized the importance of giving back to the community. "If we all do our part, the world would be a better place," Ludacris said. Far East Movement's Kev Nish agreed and explained, "The Bing Summer of Doing is all about getting out there, using your creativity and volunteer. It's only right to go back into your community and help raise it. That community raises the future leaders and the future anything, you know."
During the day-long event, Keri Hilson helped create a mural designed to inspire and empower young girls, which featured her own quote: “dream in color, wake up to a blank canvas, then paint your life with all the colors your hear desires.” Ludacris worked with various volunteers on almost all the school’s projects including Keri’s mural, as well as a Do Something That Matters mural in the cafeteria. He also helped decorate the school’s newly-purchased Cardinal mobile classroom and book bus alongside Far East Movement who also helped paint part of the school cafetaria.
The Osborne High School event is part of the Bing Summer of Doing, a summer-long campaign aimed at inspiring young people to give back and volunteer in their local community during their free time this summer. The campaign, which is in celebration of the new Bing, kicked off earlier this month at Heart of Los Angeles with Cody Simpson and Hilary Duff, amongst other celebs, and will continue to New York and Chicago during the remainder of the summer.
