Country music star, Brantley Gilbert made a whopping $10.5 million donation to Toys for Tots this holiday season, according to Taste of Country.

He made the donation in partnership with the toy company, Bendon, Inc.

“Growing up in rural Georgia, I know that sometimes Christmas isn’t a time of joy for some kids and our contribution might be all they receive this year so I really wanted our donation to matter,” Gilbert told Taste of Country. “I’m honored the folks and Bendon understood why I wanted to work with them and Toys for Tots.”

Gilbert’s donation was not only heartwarming, it was the largest single donation Toys for Tots has ever received, according to Taste of Country.
