Rapper T.I. spread some holiday cheer in Atlanta yesterday, by giving presents to kids in need.
The hip hop star was joined by his 'Christmas elves' – aka his mother, aunt, and friends – to surprise children and families in need with Christmas presents.
The festive group made three surprise visits, to Egleston Children’s Hospital, Doctor Daycare, and John Lewis Invictus Academy middle school football team.
The Christmas Caravan was hosted under the umbrella of Tip’s non-profit organization, Harris Community Works (HCW). The charity works to empower and elevate the local community through education, awareness, and opportunity.
HCW focuses on community impact projects that help improve lives through community transformation initiatives, civic engagement efforts, community outreach, and youth development programs.
Hollywood Life spoke with a source who said that:
“Tip spent the entire day giving out gifts to kids in need in the Atlanta area,” the source said. “He started the morning with a stop at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta, and then visited a daycare center, and a local school. This is one of his favorite times of the year and doing his annual Christmas Caravan is his favorite way to kick off the holiday.” Even cooler? His visits were a total surprise to everyone! Obviously, the kids were shocked and thrilled when their fave rapper showed up bearing gifts.
