"I would like to thank Mr. Johnson for his thoughtful and generous gifts. Maybe more people who have been financially successful could learn from this young man."

Many do, but keep it out of the media.

And many of those people aren't part of a professional sport that kids look up to, yet is filled with folks like Dez Bryant and Ndamukong Suh who are absolute thugs.

Like it or not, Andre Johnson is a role model to many of America's youth, and by making is charitable ways public it stands as a stark example that not every NFL player is a lowlife, and in fact some of them are truly remarkable individuals off the field.

Or you could just find a way to be bitter about someone helping out children, that's always an option.

I am pretty sure he gets followed, he did it none the less, 12 kids 19,000 dollars that is quite the hefty sum.

"Isn't this what the season is all about? "

Actually, the season is about Christ's birth: Christ-mas. The original giving done was by the 3 Wise men to commemorate the significance of that event. Christmas has been churned into a spending-spree shop-a-thon ever since. I would bet you that these kids would not mind if not given gifts and just had time to spend with a loving family...like it's supposed to be. This holiday was never intended to be about buying gifts and going into debt.

ACTUALLY, the "season" is about giving and sharing. Christ's birth is a one-day event, December 25th.

Andre has shown not only that he is a Top NFL player but a Super Human Being trying to make a mark in the memories of a little kid who will probably never forget that one day, in their life something great happened to them.There is no price on a little kids face of happiness. Andre ,you are a great human being and may you live long and prosper .

Andre Johnson does a truly wonderful thing for kids, and people find a way to criticize it. "He should've spent more", "he should've helped even more kids"... some people are impossible to please.

Kids he didn't know, who have had a life harder than many, were given a little joy this season by a man who is clearly aware he has more money than he and his family need. How about instead of being cynical, you find a way to help all the other disadvantaged children out there Mr. Johnson could not.

Hi Mom!

I'll second that. In an age where a lot of athletes, particularly and strangely in the WR position, to a more talking about themselves, he literally put his money where his mouth is.

It's what I'd like to see a lot of these other athletes talking about too.
