On December 7th R&B superstar Ne-Yo will launch his Compound Foundation’s Giving Tour to celebrate the season of giving.  With four scheduled stops at the Boys & Girls Clubs of America in Las Vegas, Chicago, Boston and Washington D.C., Ne-Yo and his colleagues will  impact over 3000 childern by providing gifts by Toys for Tots, books, clothing and meals for children ages 3-18.

“The Giving Tour is rooted in our commitment to the uplift youth growing in the welfare system within underprivileged communities. The Christmas season is all about giving of yourself – That’s the true meaning of Christmas. Helping those that are less fortunate than ourselves – That’s what this time of year is all about. We are pleased to continue the program for a fourth year and are excited to enter new markets in 2011. Our annual events aim to ensure that foster youth experience the rights and privileges of childhood all children are entitled to, such as holiday giving and traditions.” says Ne-Yo “I am also pleased to be joined, for the second year, by Angela and Vanessa Simmons. They will join us and actively sign autographs, taking photographs with those in attendance and distributing their Pastry products.”

The four-city celebration tour will kick off in Las Vegas on Wednesday, December 7th; then moves to Chicago on Thursday, December 8th; and then to Boston on Friday, December 9th; and finally to Washington D.C. on Sunday, December 11th.

“We are bringing the magical experience of Christmas to children that otherwise might not have an opportunity to experience it.  I love this time of year and can’t wait to see the wonderment in the eyes and the smiles of joy on the faces of the children as they come out and share in the holiday festivities”, said Loraine Smith, President of The Compound Foundation.
