*Hill Harper gathered some of his Hollywood friends to give back to the community during the holiday season and give toys to underprivileged children at his 7th Annual Manifest Your Destiny Foundation Toy Drive & Fundraiser.
Once again, Harper teamed up with fellow actor and friend Nate Parker for the toy drive as a co-host. The fundraising event kicked off at the Avalon Hollywood in Hollywood.
“Manifest Your Destiny Foundation is a foundation that’s all about helping young people,” Harper said about the 6th Annual Manifest Your Destiny Foundation Toy Drive & Fundraiser. “We have an opportunity here in Hollywood to come together and give toys.”
He added that his friends are always asking him how to give back and he encouraged Hollywood to take advantage of doing this.
“At the end of the day my foundation is about education. But it can’t just be about that. We wanted it to be about something more,” he said.
He added, “and helping young people who might not have families who can afford this… we want to be able to give this to kids, and we can in Hollywood.”
Harper started the foundation in 2006 in order to “enhance, engage, empower and inspire youth towards a future of achievement, fulfillment and happiness.”
It’s not too late to get involved. He encourages folks to get involved and donate on his Facebook page.
