Drake visited South Florida to surprise with donations -that together exceeded one million dollars - to students, supermarket customers and homeless people living in shelters in Miami. The first appearance that the singer made was in an institute, where he surprised the students and asked them to be his extras in the video clip of his new single "God's Plan," which he is promoting. Before leaving, the Canadian donated $25,000 to the school and promised to supply them with school uniforms from his own clothing brand.

The philanthropic path of the rapper extended to the University of Miami, where this time Destiny James, a medical student, received a scholarship of $50,000. In videos and photographs published on social networks, you can appreciate the happiness of all. As if it were not enough, Drake also donated $10,000 to the Frost School of Music from the same educational institution.

The Hispanic supermarket "Sabor Tropical" also received Drake by surprise, where he went up in one of the cash registers and through a megaphone informed the clients that the purchase of that day was going to be paid by him. The manager of the store then informed "Despierta America" that around 40 customers brought home food for free and that the bills ranged between 500 and 2000 dollars.

A customer by the name of Guille Deza told E!, that Drake “helped people find what they were looking for and encouraged all—to buy everything they want and to fill their carts.” In addition, he also distributed gift cards worth $150 to all the women of a shelter in Miami who have suffered some kind of abuse and likewise distributed toys for the 140 children living in the same shelter.

"Last 3 days were the best I have had in a very long time...there’s nothing like seeing people experience a joyful moment when you can tell they need it the most," wrote the singer in his Instagram account.
