T.I. celebrated Easter by helping a Georgia church post bail for nearly two dozen nonviolent offenders.

The New Birth Missionary Baptist Church in Lithonia initially set out to raise $40,000, but by the end of Lent, they had reached $120,000, allowing seven women and 16 men to be brought home in time for Easter Sunday.

As part of the “Bail Out” program, each individual will also be connected with a mentor for weekly check-in meetings. A portion of the donations will also go towards college savings for the children of the recipients, including Tyron Pollard.

“For people to just reach out, willing to help out of the blue, them not knowing you from nobody…that’s a blessing,” said Pollard. “I was doing drugs before I got locked up … but I don’t want to do nothing but do right and strive to be a model citizen for my kids.”

Dr. Jamal Bryant, senior pastor at New Birth, applauded the efforts of the “Bail Out” program. “It’s almost like finally meeting the good Samaritan – somebody who you don’t know that you didn’t see coming,” said Bryant. “They’re appreciative to be able to press the refresh button.”

That’s good that T.I. partnered with New Birth to get families reunited for Easter.
