Mega-producer and rapper Will.i.am is the latest celeb to go above and beyond by giving back to those less fortunate. The Black Eyed Peas frontman recently launched a mortgage relief fund called i.am.home, offering financial assistance to homeowners. In an interview with UK newspaper The Sun, Will.i.am (real name William James Adams, Jr.) said, “I rescue families who are losing their homes because they have no jobs and they can’t pay the mortgage and the banks are foreclosing on their homes.” He added that none of the families had to pay him back. His goodwill doesn’t end there. Will.i.am also founded the Peapod Foundation to help needy students with college tuition. To date, the foundation has sent nine students to college. Kudos to Will.i.am for going the extra mile.
