KYLIE Jenner’s boyfriend Travis Scott pledges $5 million to ‘make concerts safer’ after tragedy at Astroworld
In November 2021, 10 concert-goers were killed after a crowd knocked them out.
On Tuesday, Travis shared a post announcing his newest venture, Project Heal.
He shared the news with a graphic of the word in big black letters, along with more information about his plans.
The rapper captioned the post, “Over the past few months I’ve taken the time and space to grieve, reflect and do my part to heal my community.
“Most importantly, I want to use my resources and my platform to move toward actionable change.”
Travis continued, “This will be a lifetime journey for me and my family.
“While it is Eastern for businesses and institutions to remain in the shadows, I feel as a leader in my community I must stand up in times of need.
“My team and I created Project HEAL to take much-needed action to support real solutions that make all events the safest places they can be.”
The caption continued, “I will always honor the victims of the Astroworld tragedy who remain in my heart forever.
“Giving back to youth and creating opportunity is something I have always done and will continue to do as long as I have the chance.
“This program will be a catalyst for real change and I can’t wait to showcase the rest of the technology and ideas we’ve been working on.”
Travis concluded: “See you all so soon.”
Fans and members of the Kardashian family commented on the post.
The comments were mostly positive and supportive.
Khloe Kardashian wrote, “We love you.”
One fan added, “Turn that pain into purpose.”
A second contributor commented, “This is the best answer. Actions speak louder than words.”
Some others just posted hearts in the comments.
According to Travis’ post, Project Heal includes concert safety measures and more.
Describing the initiative, the post said: “Project HEAL is a multi-stage initiative dedicated to addressing the challenges faced by today’s youth, particularly those from marginalized and vulnerable communities.
“In partnership with the Cactus Jack Foundation, Project HEAL brings together academic grant initiatives, free mental health resources, a creative design hub and a first-ever technology-driven event security solution.
“These efforts, independently and collectively, aim to solve challenges and overcome issues that impact the youth community.”
The description ended with, “As this program will evolve over time, the following are cornerstones of this initiative.”
These pillars include the Waymon Webster HBCU Scholarship Fund, the expansion of the CACT.US Youth Design Center, mental health resources and the US Conference of Mayors, and technology-driven event security solutions.
TMZ reported that Travis poured millions of dollars into the project.
According to the outlet, he’s deposited about $5 million so far and split the money between the tiers.
According to TMZ reporting, $1 million of Travis’ money went toward scholarships that will help about 100 students get through college if they maintain the required academic record.
The rest of the money was then distributed to the other levels at Travis’ initiative.
However, TMZ did not disclose the exact amounts.
The Project Heal announcement is one of the few times Travis has returned to social media since the tragedy.
He had previously returned to announce the birth of his son Wolf.
