T.I. pays for Christmas gifts for single mothers

Hip-hop star T.I. gave single mothers in Atlanta, Georgia reason to smile on Christmas Eve (24Dec17) as he helped to pay for last-minute presents during an impromptu shopping spree.

The Whatever You Like hitmaker stopped at a Target superstore on Sunday and announced that he wanted to help struggling moms pay for their items.

He shared video footage of his generous gesture on Instagram, revealing he spent $20,000 in just 30 minutes, before having to rush off to catch a flight.

"Wish I could've came earlier,stayed longer & done more for more people...," he wrote in the caption. "But still I'm blessed to be able to do anything I can for those in need.

"Merry Christmas to everyone who helped me thumb through 20k in 30mins. If I missed you... I'll catch up with you next year!!! Happy Holidays to all of you!!!! From me and mines, to you and yours... MERRY CHRISTMAS (sic)!!!!"

T.I. has made a point to share his wealth with those in need, particularly during the festive season, having previously pulled off two similar stunts at Atlanta-area Walmart stores in 2016.
