Ludacris Helps Runaway Teens

 Rap Daily: Rapper Christopher "Ludacris" Bridges will give a hand to distraught teens this summer, as part of an ongoing partnership with the National Runaway Switchboard (NRS).

Ludacris, who has worked with the organization since 2006, aims to help runaway teens in crisis, by starring in a new PSA to promote NRS' new live chat service.

"I'm fortunate I'm in a position where I can help the National Runaway Switchboard reach out to runaway and at-risk youth," Ludacris said in a statement. "I want young people to know they don't have to face their problems alone and this new live chat service will provide another way to get the help they need."

The chat line is a new way for teens in need to get advice for their problems, or to connect them to valuable resources, such as shelter, food, or medical and or legal assistance.

"Between 1.6 and 2.8 million youth run away each year," said Maureen Blaha, NRS executive director. "Featuring Ludacris in this PSA campaign will make runaway and at-risk youth and their families aware of the help they can receive from NRS."
