It’s a little greener in New York City today, thanks to the combined efforts of Bette Midler’s New York Restoration Project and rapper 50 Cent’s G Unity Foundation. The celebs teamed up to restore a community garden in the Jamaica neighborhood of Queens, New York. The newly dedicated Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson Community Garden’s restoration is the vision of acclaimed landscape architect and designer Walter Hood. It was generously funded by 50 Cent.

“He stepped up to the plate to fund this project,” said Bette Midler, “And when it ended up costing $100,00 more than we anticipated, he didn’t bat an eyelid. He wrote the check!”

A native of the community, 50 Cent wanted to helped revamp the garden as part of his personal efforts to give back to the neighborhood in which he was raised. The opening celebration of the garden featured children from Myrtle P Jarmon Day Care Center who use it as a part of their curriculum. Council members, teachers and members of the community were there to mark the occasion with a Halloween themed party.

“It’s nice to be able to give back to this next generation of kids,” said 50 Cent. “This is the first of many projects I’m going to do in this community.”
