Philanthropist Jaden spreads love through food trucks

Jaden is not just known as a successful actor or musician. He is not just simply an icon. One of his best qualities is that he is also a philanthropist.

BEING the children of actors Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith puts a lot of pressure on both Jaden and Willow.

A huge factor for this pressure is whether or not they are living up to their parents’ names.

The media is constantly looking at what they are doing.

Something that we all forget is that these children are their own persons.

They are capable of achieving many great things on their own.

In fact, Jaden and Willow dropped their last name “Smith” when they grew as artists and musicians of their own caliber.

One of their goals in growing up as professionals is to not rely on their last name.

Jaden is not just known as a successful actor or musician.

He is not just simply an icon.

One of his best qualities is that he is also known as a philanthropist.

Just look at his biggest people-centric project to date: the I Love You food truck.

It was his way of celebrating his 21st birthday in 2019.

His goal here is to provide people, especially homeless people, with “healthy, vegan food for free”.

He wanted to be able to give a warm welcome to homeless people without expecting anything in return.

The food truck has served low-income communities in Los Angeles and in New York since 2019.

Huge Upgrade

And this year, Jaden is planning to upgrade the I Love You project into a full-fledged restaurant.

The biggest twist? The restaurant will revolve around the “pay it forward” principle.

“But if you’re not homeless, not only do you have to pay, but you have to pay for more than the food’s worth so that you can pay for the person behind you,” he says.

This is an incredibly good way to encourage more people to give more than they take.

Through this, we may learn about the true value of building camaraderie in low-income communities and making healthy food options accessible to all.

Out of all these and more that Jaden has done, it is really a fact that he has a whole life filled with success and inspiration.

He is not afraid to tell the world through his work how much love he has to give, and he is admirable for it. (EFO)
