The rapper and his Leading By Example Foundation were on hand Wednesday for the 4th annual holiday Grant-A-Wish event, where 100 local parents and their children gathered to receive gifts and snacks just in time for the holidays.

During the event, 21 was honored in a very special way by State Representative Billy Mitchell -- with a proclamation ceremony to officially declare December 21st as "21 Savage Day."
The honor comes as a tribute to 21's efforts in the community and for the students he's helped through his "21 Savage Bank Account" campaign to create social awareness around financial literacy. He granted a total of 21 scholarships at $1k each to get it started.
The campaign aims to encourage youth to understand the basics of managing money, opening bank accounts and saving for college.
