- Couple Jeannie Mai Jenkins and Jeezy were wed in a private, simple ceremony with just family.
- The charitable couple donated their wedding registry proceeds to Stop Asian Hate Movement and AAPI community support.
- After their wedding, they donated 1,000 bicycles for Atlanta inner-city youth.
The couple’s wedding may have been intimate and private, but their charitable gesture is public.
And Real co-host Jeannie Mai Jenkins’ IG post showed her delight over their deed: “This past weekend, @streetdreamzfoundation and @tonyrobbins gifted 1000 bikes to inner city youth here in Atlanta. Honored to witness the look of pure joy in these kids❤️.”
She recalls that she had her first bike when she was 7 and that she shared it with her brother. The feeling of being free as she races in the wind remains with her always.
For his part, Jeezy in a press release said: “The only time I felt free was when I was in motion. That’s your chance to see where you want to go in life because if you stay still, that’s where you’ll stay. If you’ve got a vision, you can achieve it. Just like you can ride from one street to the next, you can do that with life, too!”
The event called Wheelz of Dreamz was done at the historic Clark Atlanta University ahead of a rally where Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms and “Soul Survivor” rapper gave speeches.
This is not the first time that the couple shared their blessings with others and gave back to their community. And this would not be the last either.
Before saying their vows in their Atlanta home, their wedding registry via TheKnot became a fundraiser for the Stop Asian Hate movement. Everything went to fundraisers for AAPI community support.
The TV personality said that she and Jeezy have a shared bond and passion to take care and serve their communities and they will continue to stand up against hate, injustice, and racism.
“It’s not just the recent events that make me mindful about our distinct culture. For Jeezy, everything — from his upbringing, experiences, struggles and his position in this white-centric country — is a learning curve for me; and, vice versa. Part of the foundation of our love is constantly discovering our respective identities and gaining an understanding from our experiences,” Mai said.
