Nicki Minaj Donates $50K to ‘Toys For Tots’ Program

Nicki Minaj is channeling her inner Santa! The superstar recently made an appearance on Watch What Happens Live where she announced she would be donating toys plus making a generous donation to the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve’s Toys for Tots program, which distributes toys to children in need.

“I would like to donate $50,000 to Toys for Tots because I love this organisation. I love what it stands for. It means the world to me, and God bless all the children in the world,” she says in footage shared from the taping on social media.

The ‘Pink Friday’ rapper presented representatives from the foundation with a giant cheque which was all pink, of course!

“I am incredibly speechless,” Toys for Tots program coordinator Raul Pillco said. “It means the absolute world to be able to give back to the New York City community and just for the children across the nation. So, with somebody with such a superstar status like you, it means the absolute world.”

Also during her appearance, Nicki spoke about her upcoming world tour: “My focus on this tour will definitely be the new album, creating a world of that album and then sprinkling everything else around that. But of course, we’re going to still have the same fun with our throwbacks, you know, how we always do!”

She continued, “I always make sure and perform my rap stuff, my pop stuff. Everyone enjoys themselves. I make sure that all of my fans feel like they are well-fed at the show.”

The Pink Friday 2 World Tour will kick off in March in Oakland, California before heading to Las Vegas, Philadelphia, New York City, Chicago, Austin and more. Nicki will then head to the U.K. and Europe.
