On Monday, the We The Best founder DJ Khaled generously donated $10,000 to Florida’s Miami Norland Senior High School towards their music program.

MTV Reports:

Miami Norland principal Reginald Lee saluted Khaled and 99 Jamz program director Derrick Baker, who is a graduate of the school. Lee stressed the importance of extracurricular activities, noting that participation in sports and music programs gives students the confidence to excel in the classroom. “They need something to feel good about, and this will definitely do it. That’s a great donation they gave to the band program and we definitely need those funds,” Lee said. “We have all these extracurricular activities kids can be a part of — drama, music and chorus — and then, you know, with budget cuts, this helps us. Those $10,000 are going directly to the band program so we can entice more of our kids.”

Khaled adds:

"The message is love. It's important to recognize where you come from," he said. "Not only that, but to inspire them. I want them to see me face to face, take pictures, vibe and just communicate with each other because this is where I live. The message is I'm just like them."
