While Tupac is commonly known for his big mouth, those that knew him best, knew him for his big heart.
Before Tupac passed he had plans to finance community-minded projects that included a center for at-risk youth, youth houses providing food, shelter and support, inner-city sports teams and a toll-free support number that kids could call to talk to someone, including himself. After his death, Afeni Shakur founded the Tupac Amaru Shakur Center for the Arts, with the mission of providing opportunities for young people through the arts – following her death the Center is now closed.
TupacCoin ($TUPAC) is an initiative by fans to further the Shakur spirit of giving and community support.
Every time a Tupac Coin is traded, a 3% fee is charged and automatically deposited into a charity wallet, which is then donated to outreach programs at the end of every month — programs such as Leila Steinberg’s AIM4TheHeART Foundation.
