King of kindness: Drake buys groceries for a whole supermarket
February 8, 2018
Drake keeps on surprising us! He recently gifted fans with two songs without any notice and now he keeps on giving. First, he donated $25,000 to the Miami Senior High, where he was filming the music video for his new song ‘God’s Plan.’ Then he also donated OVO-designed uniforms to the students.

In take-two of ‘Drake gives back,’ he donated $50,000 to a Miami university student named Destiny James. The student had applied for several scholarships and even received them when she got a call asking her to be part of a video about the importance and benefits of scholarships. When she arrived, she was taken aback to find no video crew but rather Drake with a massive cheque.
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 🙏🏾
Now in the third act of random kindness, on Tuesday Drake popped into a supermarket in Miami, called Sabor Tropical Supermarket and paid for all the customers’ groceries. It was reported that the total cost of all the groceries was $50,000. One customer said that the Canadian rapper “helped people find what they were looking for and encouraged all [of them] to buy everything they want[ed] and to fill their carts.”
Drake’s ‘God’s Plan’ broke Spotify and Apple Music’s single-day streaming record and shot up to number one on the Billboard 100. ‘Diplomatic Immunity’ entered the ring at number seven.
