T.I. is really famous for his actions to help the ones in need, and he recently made another wonderful gesture. It involves a high school student in Florida.
Tip donated a year’s worth of lunch money to him after he was denied food at school because she was 15 cents short.
Danielle Aiken is a student at University High School in Volusia County, and her case has sparked outrage, so Tip addressed it on both Twitter and Instagram.
‘This s**t is despicable!!! This is the kinda s**t that deters kids from coming to school. I’d like to take care of her school lunch for the year. I hate to hear this type of thing happening to our children. Petty a** … poor excuse for a grown person,’ T.I. tweeted.
The young lady was not allowed to eat lunch in her high school cafeteria on her first day of school because her account was underfunded by this small amount that we mentioned above. Her mother said that her meal was thrown in the trash.

‘She puts her food on the tray, gets to the front, gives her [account] number to the cashier, and she says, ‘Well, you owe 15 cents,’’ the girl’s mom said.
The upset mother continued and stated that ‘My daughter said she didn’t have any money, so the cashier took her food. That’s the big thing — it’s eating breakfast, lunch so that they can make sure that they’re doing good at their work. But then you starve my child?’
Roger Edgcomb, a spokesman for Volusia County Public Schools, responded to the incident.
‘The school is always willing to work with students and families as needed. The school will be contacting the family directly to help resolve this issue.’
