There is more to Chris brown than his on again off again love affairs and dynamic dance moves. Breezy has a soft spot for children and he displayed this over the weekend when he teamed up with Reebok to distribute shoes to underprivileged kids.

 

It’s not often Breezy opens up about his childhood experiences, but he shed some light and on why he chose to give away shoes.

 

The 24 year old singer said while growing up in Tappahannock, Virginia, he had one pair of sneakers that he could wear to school, and that was it until the next year. He is now grateful for the opportunity to help put shoes on the feet of the children who need it most.

 

“I used to have to borrow my cousin’s clothes,” he told People.com on Saturday at a Los Angeles event for his Unity Campaign, sponsored by Reebok.

 

“So being able to come from that poverty-stricken environment and then being able to get out of it is what I tried to [do]. … I just want to show the kids and have them have a better light of opportunities for them to do what they need to do.”
