Thanksgiving is all about turkey (or Tofurkey), stuffing, cranberry sauce, pumpkin pie and all the other good foods put out on the table. But Ludacris knows that not everyone is financially able to afford a good meal, so he’s taking it upon himself to fill up people’s tables for the holiday.
The man formerly known as Chris Bridges shared this image on Instragram:
He wrote, “Surprising families in East Point, GA w/ Thanksgiving food! #ludacrisfoundation #givingback”.
Ludacris started his foundation in 2001 and its mission is to “Help youth help themselves.” The foundation gives back in different ways, and Luda recognized the opportunity to give back with yummy food on Thanksgiving. He also shared what he was doing on Twitter, and got himself the special new nickname “Mr. GiveBack” while he was at it:

As a rapper, actor and foundation head, Ludacris has the power, money and ability to give back in major ways. But we’ve all got the power to give back in one way or another. Many cities have local food banks where you can donate food or even volunteer, and that might lead to the kinds of smiles you see in Luda’s picture above. Thanksgiving is a great time to give back, and even donating a can of food or an hour of your time does make a diff. It can also earn you the nickname Mr. GiveBack or Ms. GiveBack, and wouldn’t that be a nice nickname to have?
