It’s time for us to start heralding Nicki Minaj as one of the great celebrity philanthropists of her generation. You may have seen a few weeks ago how she took to Twitter and just started paying the student loans of anyone who could send her a verifiable 4.0 GPA.
She spent most of that night paying off dozens of people’s student loans and tuitions, only cutting it off when she started running low on money (she said she’d do it again in a few months so if you’ve got loans and a solid GPA and you’re not following Nicki, get on that.)
Show me straight A's that I can verify w/ur school and I'll pay it. Who wants to join THAT contest?!?!🤷🏽♀️ Dead serious. Shld I set it up? https://t.co/czH715u64a

But that’s not her only philanthropic move.
Apparently, Nicki Minaj has spent the last few years donating money to an unnamed Indian village through her pastor, Lydia Sloley. Over Instagram, Minaj said that her donations have helped provide the village with “a Computer Center, a Tailoring Institute, a Reading Program and 2 WATER WELLS.”

This is the kind of thing that makes me feel the most proud. The money I've sent to this village in India for the last couple years [via my Pastor Lydia Sloley], has gotten them a Computer Center, a Tailoring Institute, a Reading Program and 2 WATER WELLS. We complain about the most ridiculous little things when some ppl don't even have clean water. Blessings to India. Our work is far from done. I'll tell you guys more about my charity work in the near future in case you'd like to be a part of it. Love🙏🏽
That’s about all Minaj has revealed so far, but it’s always nice when celebrities with unfathomable wealth choose to reach outside of their own circles and use a little of it to make the world a little better.
