Singer Ne-Yo Brings Christmas Cheer to Needy Kids

LOS ANGELES — For the past six years, Shaffer “Ne-Yo” Smith has visited underprivileged children across the country, bringing toys, games, shoes and clothing as part of his charity’s annual “giving tour.”

Ne-Yo and his mother, who is president of his ‘Compound Foundation’ recently visited six cities in six days, bringing Christmas gifts to more than 3,000 kids at Boys and Girls clubs, group homes and in foster care.

A father of two himself, Ne-Yo said he sees his children in the faces of the kids he meets at these events.

“It’s hard for me to fathom any parent that would abandon their kids for whatever reason,” said Ne-Yo, the father of a 1-year-old and a 3-month-old.

“That doesn’t compute with me.”
