It’s that time of year to spread good cheer. And that’s exactly what Ciara and Russell Wilson were up to today.
The couple made their way to the Seattle Children’s Hospital for Russell’s regular weekly visit, but this time they came bearing gifts. LOTS of cool gifts.
CiCi and Russ handed out 300 hundred tablets (sponsored by Amazon) for each kid in the facility. Nice! We know those kiddies were loving that! The Super Bowl winning quarterback took to his Instagram to share saying, “Thanks @Amazon for the @AmazonKindle for All 300 patients in @SeattleChildrens today from @Ciara & I!”
That’s so AWESOME!

In other celebs give back news….
Rapper-turned-activist David Banner and The Banner Foundation are paying it forward again for the holidays. The Grammy Award winning artist celebrated his 9th annual “Heal The Hood At Christmas” project in his hometown of Jackson, Mississippi over the weekend.
Is it just us or is this grey beard sexy? Hmph.
According to the press release, the program identifies special needs for attending families as well as encourages education, leadership, advocacy, civic engagement and accountability in the areas. The initiative evolved out of the rapper’s personal ritual of giving to less fortunate families and those impacted by Hurricane Katrina during the holiday season.
The actor/rapper chopped it up with young men and women (ages 10-17) at the Re-engaging in Education for All to Progress (R.E.A.P.) Program. This program aims to provide academic opportunities to the over-age, non-traditional, at risk of dropping out student, to help them attain a high school diploma.
The “Get Like Me” rapper then handed out gifts and fellowshipped with approximately 350 youth and their families at the annual Heal The Hood “Christmas Reception” held at the Boys & Girls Club of Central Mississippi.
David’s foundation is teaming up with the Boys & Girls Clubs of Central Mississippi to unveil “The Banner Studios,” which will be the first of six studios to support the artistic expression of young men and women of color. Def needed!
David Banner is clearly all about giving back to his community and we love it!
By the way, he’s in the studio putting the finishing touches on his upcoming album The God Box, which is expected to drop early 2016.
