Marshall Mathers Foundation involved in fundraiser supporting the DBG Youth Program.
The news came through the Instagram feed this morning, with Eminem sharing a promotional graphic concerning the happening, with the following caption:
“Proud to have the #MMF involved to help out one of my favorite #Detroit organizations Downtown Boxing Gym Youth Program! The fundraiser also gives fans the chance to win autographed gloves from our @TitleBoxing #Southpaw collab + a handwritten letter from me.”
The mission of the Downtown Boxing Gym Youth Program is to develop “good citizenship in urban youth through strong academic support, a demanding boxing program, and a connection to the community through voluntary service.”
The donation page shares that the “ten lucky winners will be chosen to win the already-sold-out Southpaw boxing gloves made by Title and autographed by Eminem. Additionally, one grand prize winner will get a handwritten response to a “Stan” fan letter from Eminem himself!”.
