Artists Doing Good: Diplo

Diplo Presents: Thomas Wesley's 1st Annual Holiday Toy Roundup

Trina's Kids Foundation

The most recent artist who is using their platform good goes to Grammy-award winning DJ/producer Diplo (real name Thomas Wesley Pentz). This week he's paired up with the 501(c)(3) non-profit organization Trina's Kids Foundation to host Thomas Wesley's 1st Annual Holiday Toy Roundup

Pentz announced on his socials that they will be collecting new toys and gently used clothes down at the Hubble Studios in Los Angeles, CA from now until Saturday at 1:00 pm. The foundation will then present two toys each to 350 kids the following Sunday at their sixth annual Gift-Giving Holiday Party. 

Holidays are a time for giving. There really is no better feeling than helping out families in need during the stressful holiday season. 

Led by founder Vince Ricci, TKF was created to help out poverty-stricken youth overcome the challenges they face in life. The team works with funding programs and residential services in Los Angeles that direct low-income adolescents toward, productive, happy and healthy lives. Other programs the foundation have worked on include Runway Wonderland, Thanksgiving Food Drive, Back2School, Endless Possibilities, and the Around The World program.
