Needy families from Atlanta and Detroit have RHOA Kandi Burruss, rapper Ludacris and funnyman Mike Epps to thank for doling out turkeys through their respected charities.

Kandi partnered with Walmart–as well as requested turkey donations from the community–to collect the turkeys and trimmings she used to offer select single-parent homes in ATL, through her Kandi Cares charity. The housewife chanteuse distributed the thanksgiving goodies yesterday alongside daughter Riley.

Not far away, rapper Ludacris kicked off his annual holiday food basket giveaway to 250 families through his Ludacris Foundation.The rapper/actor not only distributed butterballs to the ATL, but also set up a coat and toy driver. Luda set up a one stop shop of generosity to needy Atlantans at the Utopia Academy for the Arts.

Finally, to round out the various acts of kindness that kick off the holiday season, FLOTUS Michelle Obama and “Extra’s” Mario Lopez plan a Thanksgiving surprise to a worthy veteran. The California native army sergeant fell on hard times after his tour of duty finished; became unemployed and lost his Vietnam veteran grandfather to cancer. “Extra” and FLOTUS stepped in to get him back on his feet. Watch “Extra” to see how the surprise plays out.

Kudos to these celebs and everyone for serving up blessings to needy families. Let’s pass that love and generosity around more.

So, who knew funnyman Epps had a serious side? Like most of you, whenever I look at him I can’t help but drudge up this memory…and it still brings tears to my eyes. Hehehehe.

Hope that was a nice walk down memory lane, but this time the actor/comedian is tapping into his serious side by talking to kids about his anti-bullying campaign. He visited Niagara Falls, New York last week to not only collect some accolades–he received the key to Cataract City, but also share his experiences being bullied as a child.

Mike Epps spoke to kids at the Niagara Falls Housing Authority about how to cope with a bully. One method he suggested was complimenting them (not what would be on most people’s lists, but, okay) because they are usually “insecure and scared themselves.”

And if that doesn’t work?

Welp, he doesn’t instruct putting hands on others, but does share that salt can be a good defense mechanism.

Epps honesty had an impact on the crowd considering the feedback he received on Twitter:
