Jaden Smith is known for his eccentric personality and famous parents, but how about for his generosity? If he wasn’t before, it’s becoming clear that he probably should be. The 21-year-old made headlines earlier this year for his announcement that he will be using a portion of the profits of his JUST water company to install water filtration systems in Flint Michigan, an area that has been dealing with a water crisis. The purpose of this company is to bring affordable clean water systems to impoverished areas.
Now Jaden is making waves for his newest charitable initiative. A vegan food truck that will provide free meals to the homeless called I Love You Restaurant. Jaden took the truck to Skid Row in Los Angeles, an area that is known for its high population of homeless people.
Jaden posted a photo to his Instagram stating the purpose of this new project. His caption read: “@ILoveYouRestaurant Is A Movement That Is All About Giving People What They Deserve, Healthy, Vegan Food For Free. Today We Launched Our First One Day Food Truck Pop-Up in Downtown LA. Keep A Look Out Because This Is The First Of Many”
Jaden is the son of actor and musician Will Smith and Actress Jada-Pinkett Smith. He has a sister, Willow Smith. Jaden often is in the news for his unique business projects and his interesting interviews where he discusses his unusual childhood as a child of two celebrity parents. He has also talked in interviews about conspiracy theories and aliens. Jaden and his parents have gone on the record to talk about the unconventional way he was parented, and how he wasn't given rules in the traditional sense.
He is a celebrity in his own right, however it seems that he has a kind heart and a desire to use his fame in good ways. Jaden has challenged gender conventions by wearing women's wear, claiming it would make it more acceptable for other boys to do so in the future. His charitable projects include his JUST water initiative that aims to bring cheap clean water filtration systems to the underprivileged, and now this vegan food truck project. We're excited to see what he has up his sleeve for the future.
