Diddy just recently coming off some bad press after being checked by Rapper T.I. over some vodka issues, is making news for doing something great. I know everyone likes the drama and what not, but when a celebrity does a good, it shouldn’t go unnoticed. Diddy helps save the Boys & Girls Club of Harlem by donating a significant amount money.

So significant, that the amount has not been revealed, but will save the Boys & Girls Club of Harlem from having to cut their programming and operating budget. More details when you continue…*claps hands for Diddy*

October 11, 2011 (New York, N.Y.) The Boys & Girls Club of Harlem, an organization dedicated to youth development by providing access and opportunities for young people in their community regardless of economic, social and family circumstances, today announced a remarkable contribution from business magnate Sean Combs, founder of the entertainment conglomerate Bad Boy Entertainment Worldwide.

The donation will significantly impact the organization’s operations budget, which has been under tremendous pressure due to enormous shifts in federal, state and private funding.

“Mr. Combs’ contribution comes at a time when we were faced with the possibility of eliminating existing programs and/or club sites. 100% of Mr. Combs’ contribution will go directly to the young people, and provide educational, recreational and social enrichment programs allowing us to move forward as a club, uninterrupted.” Willie C. Bentley, Jr. Board Member and Resource Development Chair.
