Ciara and Chris Pratt deliver Christmas presents to sick children

R&B singer Ciara and actor Chris Pratt paid a visit to a children's hospital in Seattle, Washington on Tuesday (22Dec15) to deliver presents to patients.

The Goodies star and her footballer boyfriend Russell Wilson joined the Jurassic World actor at Seattle Children's Hospital to meet youngsters spending Christmas in the facility.


Ciara shared a series of pictures of the trio handing out gifts and meeting patients on Instagram.com and wrote, "@DangeRussWilson, @PrattPrattPratt, and I made an awesome team, if I must say! Mission: Spread love, put a smile on each child's face, let each child know they're loved and that were (sic) praying for them..."


Russell, who plays for Chris' favourite football team Seattle Seahawks, volunteers at the hospital every week and managed to score a delivery of Kindle gadgets for all 300 patients.


Chris also shared pictures on Instagram and wrote, "Had the most amazing day at @seattlechildrens hospital. Got to meet a ton of great kids and parents. Also got to spend some time with one of my personal role models @dangerusswilson and his lovely lady Ciara. I am truly living the dream. Say a prayer for all those kids who don't get to be at home for Xmas. #merryxmas #HappyHolidays...


"Psalm 37:3-4 'Trust in the LORD, and do good. Dwell in the land, and enjoy safe pasture. Also delight yourself in the LORD, and he will give you the desires of your heart.'"


The trio is not the only ones spreading festive cheer to sick kids - rapper/actor Ludacris visited the Children's Hospital in Atlanta, Georgia on Tuesday to give gifts on behalf of his youth charity The Ludacris Foundation, and Star Wars actor Mark Hamill handed out presents at Great Ormond Street Hospital in London.
