Texans WR Andre Johnson drops over $18,000 on toy shopping spree for charity (Picture)

For those of you looking for a nice story to get you through this Wednesday, we bring you the kind heart of Texans wide receiver Andre Johnson who decided to do some special Christmas shopping for some at-risk kids.

Johnson let a group of kids run wild at local Toys'R'Us in Houston and the fine folks over at Shutdown Corner have the details of that day:
Johnson's Foundation, the Andre Johnson Charitable Foundation, funded the spree, in which 12 children selected by Child Protective Services had 80 seconds to fill up their carts with as many toys as they could.

"You hear a minute and twenty seconds, and you don't think that's a long time, but you'd be surprised by what these kids can put into their buckets," Johnson 

The children, ranging in ages from 8 to 16, have all suffered parental abuse in some form and now live with extended family members. But each child made sure to purchase toys for siblings and other relatives as well.
Below is the insane photo showing Johnson with the epic receipt for all the toys:
