T.I. spent Easter Sunday reuniting non-violent offenders with their families.
The “Dead and Gone” rapper celebrated Easter by assisting 16 men and seven women locked up in DeKalb County Jail in Georgia. On Sunday, T.I. bailed all 23 people out of jail.
“It’s almost like finally meeting the good Samaritan – somebody who you don’t know that you didn’t see coming,” senior Pastor Dr. Jamal Bryant said, per XXL. “[The program recipients] are appreciative to be able to press the refresh button.”
The mission to bail out non-violent offenders was first brought forward by New Birth Missionary Baptist Church in Lithonia, Georgia, per Fox 5. The church launched its effort on Lent and pledged to raise $40,000. Once T.I. and “Love & Hip Hop” star Scrapp Deleon joined the cause, they raised over $120,000.
Cameras made sure to capture the reactions of the non-violent offenders in the video above.
