Rapper Big Sean has put together a crowdsourced charity campaign to help bring awareness to the water contamination currently occurring in Flint, Michigan. The artist is making use of his celebrity status to drive awareness to the issue by putting together a contest that allows consumers to donate in order for a chance to win tickets to his concert.

Sean's project is being promoted through the Crowdrise platform where the artist is exchanging incremental donations for changes to win two attendances to his 2016 US tour that has yet to be announced. Those interested can donate between $10-$50 to help those in need. The higher the donation, the more chances the consumer has to win the draw for the concert tickets. All proceeds are being raised to help residences in Flint get back on their feet.
