‘Surprise’: Nick Cannon Gifts $5,000 to a Single Mother Who’s Taking Care of Her Disabled Son

Nick Cannon is showing some generosity by helping out a single mother who has a 27-year-old son with cerebral palsy. Cannon gave her a $5,000 donation, thanks in part to Jasmine Crowe, the founder and CEO of Goodr, a food waste management company.

“Last night I got to play a small part in a big blessing,” tweeted Crowe on March 7. “I put out a call for single moms in need and @NickCannon stepped in to surprise this mom with a $5,000 donation at the @WildNOut tour stop here in Atlanta. Thank you Nick for being a blessing. I live for moments like this!”

Reportedly, Cannon met with the single mother and her son right before he and his “Wild ‘n Out” team began their performance at State Farm Arena on March 6. He took a photo with them as well.

Crowe said the mother, who’s also disabled and unemployed, is her son’s sole care provider. Plus, she revealed that things have gotten even more difficult for her in recent times.

Her son’s condition causes him to have the brain development of a child who’s three or four years old, and he’s unable to walk, feed or care for himself.

“He recently lost his Medicaid benefits and food stamps and is no longer able to go to a day program or receive insurance or after school care,” tweeted Crowe. “(His mother) is disabled and doesn’t work and now is responsible for buying his depends, wipes and other materials for sanitation.

“I applaud this mom for her work, I pray for their situation and I thank you Nick for surprising this family with a donation I know it will be a huge help,” she continued. “Moments like this remind me of how blessed I am to be a part in blessing others. I live the best giving life, thank you God.”

The $5,000 donation certainly wasn’t the first time that Cannon has shown generosity. In 2013, for example, he donated school supplies to students in his hometown of San Diego, California.

In 2016, he and his Nick Cannon Foundation, Inc. partnered with JPMorgan Chase & Co. and San Diego Unified School District to hold the America’s Teen Mogul Summit and Student Business Plan Competition.

The competition was created to let those who are between the ages of 12 and 19 know about the various entrepreneurship opportunities in San Diego.

Cannon hasn’t commented on the $5,000 donation at this time.
