Shoppers in a Florida grocery store not only got to meet Drake on Tuesday, they got to get free groceries, on him.
The actor-turned-musician has been surprising strangers with random acts of kindness recently. These good deeds have been huge -- so far total $125,000 according to E! News. The tab for shoppers' groceries alone was reportedly about $50,000.
Needless to say, shoppers in Sabor Tropical Supermarket were thrilled when Drake walked in at roughly 4 p.m. on Tuesday. His crew had been setting up cameras, but no one knew what was going to happen, according to Guille Deza, one of the shoppers. He said that Drake was rumored to be filming for his upcoming music video for "God's Plan."
Deza posted photos with Drake on his Instagram later praising his kindness and saying that the musician was encouraging them all to buy more. "So much love and bless this man 100 times over for all his generosity," he wrote.
A real king when out and paid for everyone's groceries in the store, all the while encouraging people to buy more lol. BE GOOD AND IT'LL COME RIGHT BACK AROUND!!! ???? so much love and bless this man 100 times over for all his generosity ❤
Another shopper, Rocio, also got a picture and sent her thanks via Instagram.
In addition to his grocery giveaway, Drake also reportedly donated $25,000 to Miami Senior High School on Monday. He then handed over a check for $50,000 to Destiny James, a student at the University of Miami, for her tuition on Tuesday. She was extremely grateful and touched, which she shared on Instagram alongside a photo of her receiving the gift.
"Thank you for blessing me when I thought my hard work was going unnoticed," she wrote, in part. "I'm living out my dreams."
This happened today. I applied to scholarships last year for which I had to write an essay. I received those scholarships and thought that was the end of it. Apparently, my essay and my story made it to other departments. I was contacted this weekend about doing a video speaking about where I come from, things I've been through, and why it is so important for scholarship donors to continue to donate. This was the surprise the whole time. Drake told me that he has read great things about me and appreciates how hard I've worked through so many trials and decided to give me $50K for my tuition. @champagnepapi THANK YOU SO MUCH!!' You don't understand what this means to me! I would've never imagined this happening to me. I'm just a girl from Denmark, SC that wants to MAKE IT and be somebody and for you to see my hard work means the world. Thank you so much. God I thank you. You are so great and amazing! Thank you for blessing me when I thought my hard work was going unnoticed. I'm living out my dreams. God's Plan ????????
Drake's beneficiaries weren't the only ones happy. He shared a post of his own on Wednesday, telling fans how much it meant to him to help everyone.
"Last 3 days were the best I have had in a very long time...there's nothing like seeing people experience a joyful moment when you can tell they need it the most," he wrote.
That's some food for thought.
