Drake Creates ‘God’s Plan’ Challenge: ‘Bring Another Human Being Some Joy’
Drake’s “God’s Plan” video is one of the most inspirational clips to hit internet in a long time. In the visual, Drizzy gives out nearly a million dollars to people in need. Now he wants his fans to do the same with his just launched “God’s Plan” Challenge.
Of course, most of his fans probably don’t have $1 million to spend, but Drake wants people to give back in any way they can.
“I am not into challenges on IG I find them annoying...but today I am going to challenge everyone to just go out and do something for someone, anything, the smallest thing just to bring another human being some joy and please tag me in it somehow so I can see all the love being spread," he wrote on his Instagram account. "Just go be kind in any way you can and let’s all watch the world be nice to each other even if it’s for 24 hours...Thank You.”
Since launching the challenge, his next-door neighbor sent Drake chocolates and a card. But several fans have taken up on his challenge and delivered human acts of kindness.
Instagram star FatBoy posted a video of himself passing out hot meals to homeless people. Another person went out and gave money to several people in need.
One fan gave a hot meal that he bought from Whole Foods to a homeless man.
"[Drake] inspired me to do something nice for someone else, so I bought a hot meal for someone in need and it felt really good," said the altruistic fan. "Hopefully, you’ll see this and be inspired to spread some love and do something nice for someone else, bc the world really needs that right now."
Salute to Drake for using his platform to encourage people to bring joy to one another. Hip-hop can inspire, if artists use it correctly.
