Story by Eddy ‘Precise’ Lammare
Common has proved himself to be a man of the people. His growth into a certified A-list celebrity has been amazing to watch. Common has used his fame to make a positive impact on humanity. He has recently teamed up with Allstate and the Tom Joyner foundation to support Allstate’s “Quotes for Education.” Allstate will donate $10, up to a total donation of $250,000 for every person who receives an insurance quote from a participating Allstate agent between Aug. 1 and Nov. 30, 2016, and mentions “Quotes for Education.” These funds will be donated to the Tom Joyner Foundation and earmarked for general scholarship funds to assist students attending HBCUs. We spoke with Common about this initiative, his other community works and new projects he has coming up.
