Lil Jon’s charitable efforts on NBC’s “Celebrity Apprentice” aren’t going unnoticed.  The hip-hop star was honored on Tuesday for raising 80-thousand-dollars for Decatur, Georgia’s United Methodist Children’s Home.  The organization is using the money to create a music and arts fund in the name of Lil Jon and his wife, Nicole.  Christopher Smith is a resident at the UMCH’s transitional home, and tells CBSAtlanta.com that he views Lil Jon as a “hero.”  Lil Jon says calling him a hero might be a little generous, adding that he just tries to help out when he can.  The rapper goes on to say that his goal was to raise 100-thousand-dollars, but he’s happy he’s been able to have a lasting impact on “the kids who are here.”

The United Methodist Children’s Home isn’t the only beneficiary of Lil Jon’s run on “Celebrity Apprentice.”  Lil Jon tells the “Atlanta Journal-Constitution” that he’s gained a lot of fans while on the show.  He says he can’t walk through an airport anymore “without a lot of older women” telling him that they’re big fans.
