2 Chainz has put on his Santa Claus hat and is giving out Christmas gifts a little early this year.

The Atlanta MC and his charity TRU Foundation got wind of Dierdre Plater, a disabled veteran going through many hardships. Plater recently had surgery and has been looking for a job for nearly a year. She revealed, “It’s hard to keep gas in the car, food in the house, and do everything by myself being a single parent. I am on a fixed income.”

But 2 Chainz definitely saved the day, er, year by surprising Plater and her son at their apartment. He provided bedroom furniture, sofas, and agreed to pay her rent for an entire year.

2 Chainz revealed that a portion of the proceeds from his “Ugly Christmas Sweater” line helped provide for the Plater family, and will help other families in need this holiday season. Plater gratefully stated, “I love to see stuff like this happen for other people, but I never thought it would happen to me.”

A humbled 2 Chainz shared a post on Instagram, writing it’s “important to give back when you’ve got it.”
