Andre Johnson Buys $19,144 Worth Of Toys For Underprivileged Kids For Christmas

Andre Johnson retired from the NFL just a little over a month ago on Oct. 31, 2016 after playing for 14 seasons. Although he’s leaving his football life behind, he isn’t planning on stopping his plight to help underprivileged families in Houston.

Johnson played for the Houston Texans for the first 12 years of his professional career and has already publicly stated that he’d like to retire a Texan. Ever since 9 years ago, he started a tradition where he allows underprivileged kids to go on a shopping spree at his expense. He partners with Toys R Us to give kids, aged 8 to 16, who are under Child Protective Services, a chance to grab whatever they can in 80 seconds.

This year, he let 12 lucky kids participate. Here they are along with the Houston Texan cheerleaders:

The total? $19,144.58.

Andre posted a photo of him with the receipts to his Instagram:

The damage lol
