CupcakKe Donates $2.3K to Family That Died During Hurricane Harvey


The Chicago rapper gives back, once again. 

Months after paying for a homeless gay fan's hotel room, CupcakKe is giving back to another important cause. In the wake of Hurricane Harvey, a tropical storm that's devastated Houston and much of southeastern Texas, the Chicago rapper has donated to fund the funeral for a family of six lost in the dangerous floods.

A GoFundMe, created by a friend of 16-year-old Devorah, who died in the Hurricane, has a goal of $15k, of which CupcakKe contributed $2.3k to under her real name, Elizabeth Harris. The donation will go to support paying tribute to Devorah, her two great grandparents (84, 81) and three younger siblings (6, 8, 14).

"Please we need help," the GoFund Me says. "Funding the funerals for this many people will be expensive and with the flood a lot of their possessions have already been lost. Anything you can donate will help to make a difference."

As of press time, the fundraiser has raised $11.6k of its greater goal. Click here to donate.
