On the eve of his CD outselling Nicki Minaj to debut number 1, Kanye West was not partying it up or going on a rant.  Nope, not Kanye.

He showed up to a charity event for foster kids unannounced in New York City, asked if he could help, and started wrapping presents.  It was the 8th Annual “New Yorkers for Children” and the event was it’s “Wrap to Rap” event.  He did meet up with co-star of his music video “Runaway” Selita Banks to do the wrapping.

Kanye was asked why he did it and he told on-lookers that he believed it was for a good cause.  He wrapped the presents for a while and then snuck out the back without much fanfare.

I think it is completely cool he did that for foster kids.  I know some of you are going to say regardless of him showing up unannounced, he knew camera’s would be there.  He had nothing to gain.  His CD was already going to debut at number 1 and we all know Kanye does what Kanye wants. 

I think it is cool regardless and pick up his new CD.  It is amazing.-Dr.FB

    This is a guy with a lot of heart. Maybe not for a greedy media machine that has unsuccessfully tried to eat him alive……But for Foster Kids….the children on the lowest end of the social poll.

    God Bless you Kanye…I grew up in foster care so I know what it means for somebody like you to have us in your heart….thank you so very much!!!!!
