Marshmello is the latest celebrity who’s donated a large amount to the NAACP!  Donating $50,000, Marshmello revealed the news via Twitter, tweeting, “I stand with you and encourage others with means to contribute ANYHTING they can to worthy causes that support #blacklivesmatter.”

 

 

In a series of tweets prior to his donation, Marshmello writes: “I’ve always remained neutral with my platform but just like you underneath this costume I am human and this is my tipping point…black culture and influence play a big part in the music I make. the systematic racism and injustices that the black community face on a daily basis is something that no white person can relate to or begin to understand.  Racism should never be tolerated and it’s up to our generation to be the change especially in times when our government can’t unite us.”

 

 

Marshmello continues, “It’s up to us to bring justice for George Floyd and the countless others who lost their lives and ultimately bring this hateful racist complex crumbling to the ground.  If you ae a real fan of mine, you will do your part to stand up and join us.”

 

 

Since his donation, Marshmello has tweeted out links to various organizations, such as: the Black Visions Collective, Equal Justice Initiative and National Bail Out.
