Houston Texans wide receiver plays Santa Claus.
Here's a much needed heart-warming story from the NFL.
Houston Texans wide receiver Andre Johnson was on the giving end of a $19,000 shopping spree at Toys R' Us where he treated a group of kids to a Christmas they will never forget.
According to the Texans website:
Texans wide receiver Andre Johnson hosted his annual holiday shopping spree at Toys ”R” Us on Tuesday morning, giving 12 children selected by Child Protective Services 80 seconds to fill their bins with as many items as possible, compliments of the Andre Johnson Charitable Foundation.
“A lot of these kids get discouraged because of where they grew up and things like that," says Johnson. "I grew up in a single-parent home and I was fortunate to achieve my goals. So, whatever goals you have, just keep them out in front of you, don’t let anybody distract you away from them, because there will be distractions that try to detour you away from your goals. That’s the biggest thing.”
