Russy Simmons Gets Fly at LIFE Project for Africa

You all know that the Simmonses has two really successful young girls: Pastry owners, Vanessa and Angela Simmons. But don’t forget that the Simmons family also has such fine men.  First it’s Rev. Joseph “Run” Simmons, the wise dad / hip-hop legend and then uncle Russell Simmons the entrepreneur, then it’s down to the kids: Jojo the rapper, Diggy the clothing designer AND rapper, and last but not least the cute -but often overlooked, Russy.

And to prove how he’s all grown up and getting cuter with a high fly factor, here are some Russy pics from the LIFE Project for Africa event a couple of days ago.

Add a few more years and he’ll be a superfly Batman in his own right. LOL. Anyway, Russy kicked it with the girls and he seemed to enjoy it.

But there’s only one girl he’s got his eyes on.

Aaawww… how cute is this.  Russy and mom, Justine Simmons. They know how to take a good picture!

But what’s the event all about, you ask?  Well, LIFE Project for Africa has a mission to save life and give hope to the poor in Africa, through services that promote HEALTH, provide EDUCATION, tackle POVERTY, provide HOMES (Shelter) to the homeless, and support ORPHANS and vulnerable children among the very poor communities. According to their website, currently LIFE Project is doing quite a lot of things to benefit the unfortunate people in Africa such as:

  • Empowering local organizations to provide critical services to the people in Africa.
  • Partnering to construct wards for Njia Health Center in Dar-Es-Salaam, to eventually serve a community of 122,000 people.
  • Partnering with Rotary International to provide water.
  • Supporting indigenous organizations whose goal is capacity-building for local projects involved in health, economic empowerment, education, care of orphans and providing shelter.
  • Providing tuition to vulnerable and orphaned children in Africa.
  • Shipping medical supplies and equipment to Njia Health Center, in partnership with several U.S. hospitals and health providers.
  • Participating in the President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (Emergency Plan / PEPFAR).
  • Embarking on an educational initiative called Mwambo Computer & E-learning. The focus is increasing access to basic quality education through e-learning programs.
  • Supporting the building of a school in Tanzania.

So Russy Simmons was there for a good cause. A very important cause, that is. Good to know that. If you want to help out, you can check about LIFE For Africa at their official website at
