The Coolest Thing Kanye West Has Ever Done

11/30/2010 10:25 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Kanye West spent 90 minutes gift wrapping presents for foster kids today at a charity event in NYC -- but he didn't do it for the publicity ... he did it because he happened to be in the area and he felt like helping out.

Sources tell TMZ West was not scheduled to attend the New Yorkers for Children's 8th annual "Wrap to Rap" event at the Ainsworth in NYC this afternoon ... but around 6:00 PM, he strolled right in and asked if he could help out.

We're told some people at the event asked West why he decided to roll in -- and Kanye explained he simply felt compelled to lend a hand because he believed it was a good cause.

Our sources say West cheerfully wrapped some of the 2,000 gifts that were donated by Wal-Mart ... and then quietly slipped out the back.

How's that for holiday spirit?

I don't believe it. He knew the cameras were there or would not have done it. Not a kanya fan in any size shape or form. ****y, self absorbed and full of his own pr.... not music to my ears. People need to get a life and let him go on his way. His music can be good...but certainly not worth the ego that comes with it.

I hate the friggin' site of this a**h***! Wire his big, stupid mouth shut then you've got something.
Good thing is - he's his own worst enemy. Great hearing him get booed in the parade. LOL
