T.I.

Goes Cold Turkey for Charity

11/23/2011 7:23 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1123-turkey-day-PrinceWilliams-EXDA newly freed T.I. gave thanks in Atlanta yesterday ... in the form of 300 delicious turkeys -- which the rapper generously handed out during a charity drive for children in need.

The photos were taken at The Carrie Steele-Pitts Home -- a childcare agency for abused and neglected children -- and sources close to the rapper tell TMZ, T.I. chose to give back at the institution because he had a rough childhood himself ... and wants to instill a sense of family in the kids.

T.I. tells us, "It's an honor and a pleasure to be able to be there and serve those who need me most in the community."

Nobody is perfect but God bless T.I. he's doing a great thing by giving back to the community.

i just hope that he straightens up and learn from his past mistakes and realize life is not all about money & the fame but helping people that are less fortunate.

So what are the other celebrities doing for the lesser-than-human homeless and hungry outcasts in our society? No doubt they will be faking it up at the Fred Jordan Skid Row Mission tomorrow. Every photo-op I see in California is about hispanic/latino recipients of "thanksgiving turkeys and trimmings". South of the U.S. border - these same people aren't into eating turkey. Why are they gobbling up for this U.S. holiday? I am not a T.I. fan but I support his efforts and motives - some people in his community are being helped and fed.

He's got some extra brown stuff on his nose and it's not his skin color. Just Saying. Just another photo op for a worthless celebrity...!
