HOUSTON -

It was a busy and generous day for Houston Texans wide receiver Andre Johnson.

He began his day hosting his annual shopping spree for at risk kids from Children Protective Services at the Toys R Us on Old Spanish Trail.  Kids ages 8 to 16 had 80 seconds to pack their carts.

"You get a chance to give back to the community. I remember as a little kid I wasn't able to get things I wanted for Christmas, so we just give these kids the chance to go out and get what they want for Christmas," Johnson said.

The children had some help picking out their items from the Houston Texans Cheerleaders.

"I had a lot of fun because I had a cheerleader and she was helping me," said Diamond.

Rafael told Johnson, "(Cheerleader) Jessica helped me a lot. She's pretty fast. I think she's faster than you."

Johnson then joked that the two would race in the parking lot.

Many of the kids also grabbed some gifts for their siblings. The most popular item were iPads.

Johnson paid for all of it -- the bill totaled more than $17,000.
