Christopher “Ludacris” Bridges, Disturbing Tha Peace Records, Ebony Son Management, and The Ludacris Foundation have partnered with Soul by Ludacris headphones to present the 7th Annual LudaDay Weekend. The festivities will be held on August 30th-September 3rd during Labor Day Weekend in Atlanta, GA. In year’s past, celebrities and key influencers from all over the world have lent their time and talents to support the community initiatives and activities surrounding this annual event.
The importance of giving back to the community is the primary focus of LudaDay Weekend, and this year, Ludacris has made a commitment to highlighting local charities that support the city of Atlanta including; Frank Ski Kids Foundation, Inc., Keshia Knight Pulliam’s Kamp Kizzy, Antoine “Big Boi” Patton’s Big Kidz Foundation, Josh Powell’s 21 Reasons Foundation, Get Schooled.org, Do Something, Ryan Cameron Foundation, and the Boys & Girls Club of Atlanta.
In addition to the above mentioned causes, LudaDay Weekend has also partnered with the local organization, Charles McCree Presents: Project Walk A Mile In My Shoes, to collect donations of new and slightly used shoes and sneakers to be collected at the Ludacris (Team Luda) vs. Kevin Hart (Team Hart) Celebrity Basketball Game on Sunday, September 2nd, at Morehouse Forbes Arena. The collected shoes will be donated to the following Atlanta-based organizations; Hosea Feed The Hungry, ENBA CAMP & YouthTakeBack, and My Sister’s House women’s shelter for abused women. Since its inception in 2008, Project Walk A Mile in My Shoes has collected over 7,000 pairs of shoes for several organizations including The Boys & Girls Club, It’s Cool To Be Smart, My Sister’s House and Hosea Feed the Hungry .
