Grammy award-winning, multi-platinum artist and humanitarian 21 Savage was honored by the state of Georgia for being an outstanding citizen with his continued philanthropic efforts in the community and nationally with his ‘bank account’ financial literacy program. He was honored with a proclamation of December 21st (12/21) being permanently declared “21 Savage Day” across the state of Georgia to honor his name, presented by State Representative Billy Mitchell (District 88). This year, 21 Savage and his Leading by Example Foundation hosted their 4th annual Holiday Grant-A-Wish Event and invited 100 local Atlanta parents and children to the Wade Walker Park Family YMCA to participate in an evening filled with gifts including Moolah wireless free tablets, Christmas treats, and holiday cheer. In attendance were 21 Savage, Lorraine Cochran Johnson, and family members.
