This was so generous T.I 💕! T.I walked into a local Atlanta Target store and dropped $20,000 on gifts for some of the customers in the store 😱. In his 30- minute long shopping spree he helped mothers that were last minute shopping for their children! T.I said, “Wish I could’ve came earlier, stayed longer, and done more for more people. But still I’m blessed to be able to do anything I can for those in need,”. I know those mothers had a great Christmas 👌🏾✨.
ATLANTA (AP) — Rapper T.I. spent Christmas Eve spreading holiday cheer among some single mothers, helping them with their last-minute shopping for gifts.
In a video T.I. posted on social media, the Grammy-winning artist entered an Atlanta-area Target on Sunday and called for all single mothers present to follow him. He strolled through the store alongside several mothers, went to the cash register with them and then paid for their Christmas presents.
T.I. says he spent $20,000 within a 30-minute stretch. He had to leave after that because of a flight.
This isn’t the first time T.I. has surprised shoppers by paying for their gifts. He appeared at metro Atlanta stores around Christmas in past years to help mothers in need, including making two different stops at Walmart stores in 2016.
Praises were flowing for the Atlanta-based rapper:
