Chicago’s own Chance The Rapper is using his fame power for good. He scored a meeting with Illinois Governor Bruce Rauner to talk about the failing Chicago school system and funding.

Chance appeared visibly frustrated while speaking with reporters following the 30-minute meeting. He said the governor was “vague and asked me where I thought the $215 million was supposed to come from.” Chance told Rauner to  “Take our kids off the table.”

After feeling like he go a dead end, Chance decided to bring some of his own ideas to the table. He held a press conference at Wescott Elementary School, 409 W. 80th St. in Chicago and announced he was going to donate 1 million dollars to CPS!!!

That’s an amazing contribution!! Maybe some other wealthy Chicagoans will follow suit.

Watch video of the press conference below.
