We all have gripes about how professional athletes waste millions upon millions of dollars, but its always great to hear a feel good story about how they give back to the communities that support them. Andre Johnson definitely has one of those feel good stories here.

Earlier this week, the Texans All-Pro wide receiver took 12 kids between the ages of 8 and 16 who are currently in Child Protective Services to a Toys R Us in Houston and let them grab as many toys as they could in 80 seconds. And, in the end, he spent $19,521 in total on the kids to make sure that they have a good Christmas this year.

This is really cool and its even better for the gifts to come from someone that I’m sure many kids in the Houston area look up to. Johnson is an amazing player or the field and a great person off it as well.
