CHICAGO (WLS) — Chance the Rapper’s charity SocialWorks is celebrating its fifth anniversary. So far it has raised $8 million, including $2 million donated by the rapper himself. The organization works to empower young people through the arts, education and civic engagement.

Four of the SocialWorks students helped design a shoe for Jordan Brand Chicago collection. At 12 years old, one of those designers is the youngest in Nike history. Proceeds from shoe sales benefit SocialWorks.
Chance and his brother Taylor Bennett are ambassadors for the NBA All Star Game, and Chance is the half time performer.
