Call her Cardi Claus! Cardi B is clearly in the Christmas spirit. Sources spotted her buying a large number of toys for kids at a Miami-area Target on Friday.
Toys included games, dolls, toy cars, and more. According to TMZ, the Bronx rapper racked up a bill of $5,000 and even needed the help of a U-Haul truck to transport the gifts.
“It’s unclear exactly where the gifts will go — Cardi talked about helping kids out in New York — but nonetheless, it’s an awesome gesture,” TMZ reported.
This isn’t the first time Cardi made news for her charitable spirit. Earlier this month, she donated goods during a trip to the motherland — Nigeria and Ghana. While in Nigeria, she stopped by a local grocery store to buy supplies, including water, food, and diapers, for the Motherless Babies Home orphanage located in Lekki.
“Gotta thank the ladies and gentlemen that nurtured these kids that need just a little bit of more love and protection and gear them up for a better place, destiny, and future. People like Y’ALL MATTER!” she wrote underneath a photo with orphanage workers.
Last year, the rapper visited the Gravesend neighborhood in Brooklyn to donate free winter coats to families in need, according to People.
“I want these kids to learn from me that you got to give back to the hood,” she told reporters. “These kids follow me, these kids listen to my music.”
“We’ve gotta set an example for the kids and the future,” Cardi added. “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.”
The rapper also showers her family with lavish gifts for their milestone celebrations. For her husband, Migos rapper Offset’s recent birthday, she gave him a stack of cash — $50,000 worth to be exact. And recently, for her baby sister Hennessy‘s birthday, Cardi gifted her a Mercedes-Benz truck.
For her daughter Kulture’s first birthday in July, she spent around $400,000 for a fun-filled bash in New York City with family and friends.
Christmas 2019 will be Kulture’s second go-round, so there’s no telling what Kulture will find under the Christmas tree!
Kudos to Cardi! She doesn’t just blow bags on herself using her money not only to splurge on her family but also to give back to those in need.
