Meek Mill is putting smiles on families’ faces this holiday season. The Philadelphia rapper recently posted bail for 20 arrested women so they could go home to their families for Christmas.

“Nobody should spend their vacation in jail just because they can’t pay bail,” Meek told the news agency. “I am grateful for the opportunity to help these women stay with their families and loved ones at this special time of year.”

Another 15 will go home next week. All 20 women will receive gift cards, which they can use to purchase groceries or gifts, at their discretion.

The leader of the Dreamchasers is all too familiar with emotional gatherings where someone has been locked away and separated from their family. “It was painful to be away from my son during the holidays when I was in prison,” he said.

Meek’s REFORM coalition released an official statement on Twitter regarding the Philadelphia rapper’s philanthropic work.

“#Meekmill made a heartfelt gesture by posting bail for women currently incarcerated in Philadelphia,” they wrote.
