That's right. 

As part of the Live Civil Christmas Giveaway, 500 kids were given free Trukfit outfits for Christmas.

According to, Lil Wayne said of the event, "A lot of people tend to forget about those who are less fortunate during the holiday season, not many understand how receiving just one item could bring so much joy to a child's life..."

Karen Civil told over email that this initiative has roots in her personal life.

"Being a Haitian american it's important to give back to my parents homeland, to help the less fortunate have the save opportunities and advances I was given as a child.. every young child should enjoy a gift from Santa," she said.

Not just any Santa though. Fellow Haitian-American and boxer Andre Berto surprised the kids dressed up in full Santa garb.
