T.I. buys $20,000 worth of Christmas gifts for strangers at Atlanta Target

If you need a post-Christmas pick-me-up, T.I. will make you smile.

The Atlanta rapper visited the Camp Creek Marketplace Target earlier this week and spent $20,000 in 30 minutes on gifts for random customers.

T.I. entered the store calling for all single mothers who needed gifts for their children to meet him in the back (which appears to be the electronics department). From there, he mingled with fans while shelling out money for gifts.

In his Instagram post, he indicated that he wants to return next year for a repeat effort.

T.I. was a busy Santa during the holiday season. On Dec. 19, he visited several locations, including Doctor Daytime and Kid’s Time, with a U-Haul full of toys. As with his Target appearance, T.I. was smiling and engaged.

“But still I’m blessed to be able to do anything I can for those in need,” he said on Instagram.
