Cardi B turns Santa Claus as she splurges $5,000 on toys and donates them to a children's charity just before Christmas
Cardi B is embodying the spirit of giving back this festive season!
The 'Bodak Yellow' rapper was seen at a local Target in Miami, Florida on Friday, December 20. According to TMZ, she spent thousands of dollars on buying presents and gifts for children. The gifts ranged from dollhouses to sports sets and many more with the total cost reported to be at $5,000. It is not known where Cardi planned to donate the many gifts that she had purchased.
The presents were then loaded into a rented moving truck which headed off to deliver the presents to the unsuspecting children. For her shopping expedition, she was seen sporting a pair of high waisted grey sweat pants which had a lime green trim. She had paired the sweat pants with a crop top which was a darker shade of grey.
This is not the first time that Cardi has been generous and thoughtful and it was just last year that she visited the Gravesend neighborhood in Brooklyn to donate free winter coats to families in need.
Even though the rapper was raised in the Bronx, Brooklyn has always had a special place in Cardi's heart given that's where two of her music videos were shot. As reported by People, she had told reporters, "I want these kids to learn from me that you got to give back to the hood. These kids follow me, these kids listen to my music."
The 27-year-old added, "We’ve gotta set an example for the kids and the future. You know, sometimes people think that we just be doing the messed up things, but we really, really, really care for our kids, our community and everything."
Earlier this fall, the mother of one had shared that she was excited to be keeping her celebrations down low this year. "I’m going to Atlanta," she had shared as she referred to her husband Offset's hometown. "I spend it with Offset‘s family. A lot of open space down there so I can’t wait."
