Andre Johnson Is Santa Claus, For Real

Jolly ol' St. 'Dre - Thomas B. Shea

Taking a quick break from showing all the skeptics that he's still one of the best wide receivers on the planet, Andre Johnson hosts his annual toy giveaway for underprivileged children. 'Dre Claus is the best.

This site has been around since 2007. For at least that long, every year, Andre Johnson has hosted and paid for a group of underprivileged kids to have a Christmas that they otherwise could only dream of. Another year, another amazing act of selflessness from the greatest Texan of all-time:

Johnson’s foundation gladly picked up the tab (which came to $19,521) for the 12 kids, who were chosen by Houston’s Child Protective Services department. All of the children have been taken out of their homes because of parental abuse. Johnson, who has been footing the bill for the annual shopping spree for years, said he has been particularly touched to see that the kids aren’t just thinking of themselves as they grab all the toys they can.

“All the kids that have been here every year have gotten gifts for their brothers and sisters or cousins or whoever,” he said. “It just shows what they go through that they think about others. It shows what type of kids they are.”

And this shows what type of man Andre Johnson is.

Indeed it does. Indeed it does.
