Eminem and Justin Timberlake are lending a helping hand to the Manchester UK bombing’s victims. The two superstars have helped to raise over $2 million for the cause.
Using social media, Eminem tweeted out a crowdfunding link that aimed to receive donations that totaled at least £2 million. “Join me in helping Manchester victims & their families, Make a donation to the @BritishRedCross and @MENnewsdesk,” Eminem posted on Twitter. This move was rather significant, considering the fact that the rapper doesn’t really use social media much. The majority of his posts are about upcoming shows and The Eminem Show anniversary.
But, Slim Shady was deeply hurt by what took place at Ariana Grande’s concert last week, like all of us, and decided to use his voice to make a difference. Read his tweet below.

Timberlake used his influence to help out with efforts, as well. The singer also tweeted out two links that asked for donations for Manchester victims. One of the links was for the British Red Cross’ site and the other was for the same crowdfunding site that Em tweeted out earlier. See Justin’s tweet below.

Em and JT’s personal donations haven’t been disclosed. Nevertheless, these two stars helped raise over £1,770,000 for the crowdfunding effort that has a £2 million goal. Thanks to Eminem and Timberlake this objective is almost complete!
