Awww this almost makes us forget about his negative remarks about "Black Lives Matter". We can't believe that Cam Newton did...

Score a massive hit for the good guys. And by good guys, I mean Cam Newton.

He just did a major solid. For a whole lot of people.

Cam is hosting 800 underprivileged kids (and their families) for a huge Turkey Day extravaganza in Charlotte. And not only that, but each kid gets a SECOND Thanksgiving meal to take home for later. When it comes to leftovers, everyone can agree that Thanksgiving leftovers taste pretty damn good even a few days after you’ve stuffed yourself silly the first day.

It's all part of the NFL star's 4th annual "Cam's Thanksgiving Jam" on Monday -- which includes entertainment for the kids, celebrity guests, and the QB himself serving the food! The Cam Newton Foundation says each family will also receive a "full second Thanksgiving meal to prepare at home, courtesy of Food Lion Feeds."

And let me say, that is JUST the kind of action which makes the holidays bearable and its incredibly heartwarming to see not all professional players are so wrapped up in their own lives that someone can still spread some cheer to the less fortunate and their families.

This is what makes Cam Newton great. The guy is showing everyone in Charlotte what it’s like to give back when you’re on top, and that sort of behavior can be infectious to a community. I’m not saying it’d be cool to see other professional football players host similar Thanksgiving and Christmas charities… but I MIGHT be saying it’d be cool to see other professional football players host similar Thanksgiving and Christmas charities.

Just saying.
