Press Release Service – Wired PR News – Rapper and actor Ludacris recently gave away 20 vehicles to people struggling with transportation issues. As reported by the Associated Press (AP), the entertainer chose recipients via an essay contest in which individuals detailed their hardships in finding and maintaining employment in the recession, while faced with a lack of transportation of their own.
Ludacris is quoted by the AP as stating, “People are getting laid off, and now are looking for jobs… To be efficient, you need some transportation of your own to get there. That’s why I wanted to give back to those who need it.”
One car recipient Crystal Beauford, a 26 year-old mother and student with two jobs, is quoted in the report as stating of the gift, “This is going to help me out so much… It’s a blessing.”
