Rappers Meek Mill and Jay-Z teamed up with Patriots owner Robert Kraft to make Christmas a little more special for kids in Philadelphia with a massive toy giveaway.
“Took them blessings and put on for my peoples in a major way,” Meek Mill, the 34-year-old Philly born rapper, captioned his post on Instagram about the giveaway which donated $500,000 worth of gifts to kids.
“Blessings,” he added. Born Robert Williams, the rapper’s post also included several pictures from the event held Sunday in South Philadelphia. One showed an overhead shot of thousands of people in lines that wrapped around the building. At the event, kids scored things like laptops, bikes, coats and more.

The “Sharing Locations” hitmaker’s massive giveway for the kids was possible thanks to the help of friends like New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft, Philadelphia 76ers partner and Fanatics CEO Michael Rubin, and the superstar’s managers at Roc Nation, which founded by Jay-Z, Philadelphia ABC 6 News reported.
The superstar also planned to donate another $30,000 to the local chapter of Twelve Days of Christmas — a volunteer group that helps give supplies to families in need during the holiday season, TMZ noted.
