Having just wrapped up his sixth annual Giving Tour, in support of his album, R.E.D., which stands for Realizing Every Dream, Ne-Yo‘s really standing behind his words this holiday season.

The three-time Grammy winner visited fice cities, with his nonprofit, The Compound Foundation, to give toys to needy children.

“We do it every year. We do four to five cities in four to five days. We always do Vegas because it’s where I grew up. We’re doing Vegas, LA, Atlanta and Newark, NJ. we team up with Boys & Girls Clubs, Coca-Cola, Toys for Tots, and a few other people who can talk the talk as well as walk the walk,” the singer told MTV. “We go to Boys & Girls Clubs in cities and we make Christmas for kids who might not get one otherwise. We give out clothes and toys and bikes and make a day of it. We do it every year and it’s roughly 500 kids per city. It’s a good thing.

“I feel that circumstance — where and how you grow up — should have nothing to do with where you go in life,” Ne-Yo continued. “As a foster kid, as a group home kid, you’re kind of counted out before you get the opportunity to prove your worth. I don’t feel like that’s right.”
