Big Sean and his Sean Anderson Foundation held the second annual DONWeekend celebration, featuring a free block party and a mental health panel, in Detroit on August 17 and August 18. In addition to gifting the children and people of his community with free carnival rides, and haircuts, the multi-platinum artist also donated a $100,000 studio to the Dauch Boys & Girls Club.

Sean reflected on the event with a series of photos in an Instagram post.
“Went and threw the most legendary Block Party! Free hair braiding n cuts, rides, food, etc. but what’s fire is we introduced kids/grown folk to self-healing, coding, music/engineering lighting programs, yoga, and more, right in my old neighborhood where they never get anything like this n need the inspiration n our guidance the most. All King’s n Queens” he wrote in the post caption.
“It’s our 2nd year doing it and I intend to do it every year til I die and even after that.”
Sean Don has been making a serious effort to put on for the D since publicly sharing his triumph over depression earlier this year. The 31-year-old rapper recently announced that he’s gearing up for his upcoming studio album “Don Life” by returning to his roots.
