American rapper T.I. came to his hometown of Atlanta with his daughter Heiress Diana Harris to give away turkeys and fresh vegetables to the community just like Nicki Minaj. He later posted a video of the day to his Instagram page.
“We been there… filling the gap in our community,” T.I,who is 38, said. “Doing our part for the people 13 years straight. And it’s been an absolute pleasure. Always honoured to do what we can for the community that was there for me first.”
Joining the rappers in giving back to their communities was Nick Cannon and David Burtka, who also shared a post about their experiences on social media.
Burtka, who is married to Neil Patrick Harris, was present in a Food Bank for America event at a community kitchen in Harlem on Wednesday with his two kids Harper Grace and Gideon Scott. The actor and musician, 43, posted a picture of the trio smiling in their aprons and hats to Instagram.
“I think it is so important to teach kids to give back and help others, especially during the holiday season,” he captioned the nice shot. “@foodbank4nyc @feedingamerica #helpout #giveback #makeadifference”
Nick Cannon also headed to Harlem with his twins Moroccan and Monroe on Wednesday. The actor,who is 38, is no stranger to giving back: he’s been a supporter of Feeding America’s Entertainment Council for more than a decade.
During his tour on Wednesday,Nick Cannon and his children helped elderly community members shop the pantry for their Thanksgiving requirements and served meals to the needy. He later posted pictures from the day to his Instagram account.
“Giving back and volunteering Family Style!” he captioned a selfie with his two children.
Meanwhile, on the West Coast, Vanderpump Rules‘Lala Kent turned up in Palm Springs with her fiancé Randall Emmett to hand out Thanksgiving meals together.
The reality star, 28, shared a photo to Instagram on Wednesday of the couple standing by the trunk of a car holding turkeys in their hand and wrote a sentimental message about the importance of giving back.
“Sometimes I get too caught up in my own world, forgetting what real life is,” she began the lengthy post. “It’s moment like this that free my soul. Forgetting about what I want or need & putting focus and love into anyone who isn’t me.”
“50 turkeys and 100 and something cans of Thanksgiving goodness, later, we helped feed the homeless in some small way,” she continued. “The homeless shelter in Palm Springs is projected to feed 6,000 people for Thanksgiving.”
“Thank you to everyone who is giving back,” Kent finished. “Y’all mean something in this world. Let’s remember to forget about ourselves this season. God bless you and yours♥️”
