Game and Tyga Celebrate Christmas with Families in Compton
Christmas came early for families living in Compton, Calif. Hometown rappers Game and Tyga visited their old neighborhood on Friday (Dec. 21) bearing gifts and toys for children as part of their annual toy drive. Game shared several photos of the event on his Instagram page.
The photos tell the story of the importance of giving back as Game and Tyga snapped photos with families and kids who were blessed by their generosity. The altruistic rappers were like Santa Claus but without the red suit and reindeer.
Their charity work paid off with big rewards in the end. The Duckworth family, who was fortunate enough to receive gifts, sent Game a heart-warming card thanking him for his kindness. “Thank you for [bringing] my family food and gifts. You saved Christmas for us,” wrote 11-year-old Emona Duckworth on the card.
Awww, now this puts us in the holiday spirit. Check out the pictures below.
Merry Christmas, PopCrushers!
