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?

Now here's a suggestion, Kanye. Why don't you get your cheque book/credit card out and go purchase 2,000 gifts for kids in foster care. You've got money to burn so rather than drinking yourself into oblivion, do something useful with that cash.

Seriously, do you honestly think that wrapping a few prezzies gets you off Santa's naughty list?

I'm sure he saw an opportunity to "lift" a few gifts. What a no talent.

I call bull$**t. He's just trying to get back in the public's good graces bc he's made such an @$$ of himself and it's just a matter of time before he does it again. Good try Mr West. I still think you're a jerk.

NO ONE....I repeat: NO ONE, just drops in off the street JUST to wrap packages. NO ONE just happens to have photographers conveniently handy to do***ent this alleged charitable act. Once again, this idiot is trying to soften his image, and once again, he fails. ANY ONE, and again I repeat: ANY ONE who actually buys into this is the perfect buyer for the nearest bridge, or *****ian money winner. Only an idiot would buy into what this idiot is trying to pull off. Whoever came up with the idea should be made to stand in the middle of Times Square holding a sign that reads: "I am the dumb ass that told Kanye to wrap gifts!" Kanye West is a demon. Not quite the devil, but a demon. He is almost pure evil and shows it on every turn. This sad attempt even adds another notch to his failures as a human being.

So because he's a wandering fool he did a good thing? FAIL AGAIN! Instead of really putting his best foot forward and telling his publicist to select a charity and have that charity solicit for donations at the event- he wanders over to table and says hey can I help like some homeless celebrity. What an IDIOT! Either he misuses his celebrity and does bad, or he misuses it doing good. I bet the charity people were like WTF? Why wouldnt his people give us a call at least so we can get some attention other than a loony Kanye TMZ report!?!

Well "ksiebsy", just how many of us DO you know? I spend 2 hours of each weekday after work, helping kids learn to read. I'm not looking for kudos here. Just making a point. Not everyone that slams this fool, does so just out of blind hatred for him. His obvious sad attempt at salvaging his reputation is an insult to those that do it out of the kindness of their hearts.

Kanye West is a living, breathing, walking contradiction. He flip flops from being "sincere" to "jerk" every 5 minutes

He did it for a reason to try and look good, maybe he's on medication finally? No celebrity does anything outta the goodness of their heart.

You stupid haters. Maybe he's doin it for publicity, but at least he's helping, while you're sittin in fornt of your computer and watch others help those who need help. Plus he probably alreadygave millions to associations while you're livng a stupid useless hzater life. Quite sad.

The hate for Kanye is ridiculous. Him saying some stupid things about Taylor Swift outweigh him constantly participating in charity work? Theres very few people in the world that give more to chairty in terms of both time and money than Kanye but you guys are right hes an *******.

God don't like ugly all you haters on this blog, Have anyone of you prayed for this guy, I think not all you can do is judge him, not knowing his walk. Check yourselfs before judging others.
