AceShowbiz - Sean "Diddy" Combs a.k.a P. Diddy will be honored for his philanthropy by bosses at the Carver Foundation next month (May). The hip-hop mogul will receive the 2018 Child of America Award at the Carver Foundation's 80th anniversary gala for his commitment to the organisation, which provides after-school and summer programs for middle and high school students in the U.S.
"That's near and dear to him," Carver executive director Novelette Peterkin reveals. "He does a lot of philanthropic investment in programs like Carver, and we're honoured that he accepted our invitation."
"We try to honour exceptional role models for Carver youth and it's called Child for America for a reason, because we look to honour someone who's national," she adds. "He inspired my generation and he continues to inspire the younger generation now."
Throughout the years, the 48-year-old has supported a number of philanthropic causes, including The Capital Preparatory Harlem Charter School in 2016. He also established the Sean Combs Scholarship Fund at his alma mater Howard University.
