Chris Brown’s Best Buddies: Charity Work For Symphonic Love Foundation
After launching his foundation last year, Chris, 23, is focused more than ever on helping others who are less fortunate than himself! Chris spent time with renowned painter and sculptor Romero in order to raise money for those in need. Titled the Global Best Buddies Day, it aims to inspire action and understanding, while raising awareness and respect for people who have intellectual and developmental disabilities.
And Chris did not sit back — he stepped in and got his hands dirty! Chris spent the day painting and making portraits, which will be sold to raise big bucks for the charity. So great!
“They inspired each other. After they painted the mural to auction for Best Buddies, Chris and Romero went outside to paint the wall at the entrance to Romero’s studio,” said an onlooker about the day. “The paps were all over the street standing on cars to try to get shots.”
“It is amazing to see the different styles and process of the two artists come together into this incredible piece of work,” another onlooker added. “Everyone got along great and was excited to be a part of this. The Best Buddies were so excited!”
This is not the first time that Chris has made a huge difference in the lives of the less fortunate.
Chris Brown Doubles Symphonic Love Scholarships To Help Teens
On Feb. 9, Chris visited the renowned Debbie Allen Dance Academy to award scholarships to five teenage Dance Academy finalists, funded by Chris’ program. Chris was only supposed to award five scholarships, but instead he awarded 11 because he didn’t want to let any of the kids down!
“He saw how devastated the kids would be if they weren’t chosen and he decided on the spot to more than double the scholarships to 11,” the eyewitness reports. “The kids were so excited they were crying.”
Chris is truly an inspirational role model — keep up the good work, Chris!
