Rapper T.I. embraced the Thanksgiving holiday spirit on Tuesday and handed out 300 turkeys to the poor in his native Georgia.
The "Live Your Life" hitmaker took part in a charity drive at The Carrie Steele-Pitts Home in Atlanta to benefit abused and neglected children as part of the American holiday, which falls on Thursday.
And T.I., who endured a troubled childhood himself, is grateful to have been of help and to have brought some joy to kids in need.
He tells TMZ.com, "It's an honour and a pleasure to be able to be there and serve those who need me most in the community."
T.I. isn't the only charitable star to share the wealth this Thanksgiving - Lil Wayne and his Cash Money Records bosses Bryan 'Birdman' Williams and Ronald 'Slim' Williams handed out turkeys to the needy in their native New Orleans, Louisiana last week.
