Christmas came early for 100 kids in the Sacramento area on Monday.

Sacramento Kings center DeMarcus cousins took 100 kids picked from 5 local elementary schools and non-profits to Target for his 5th annual Santa Cuz Holiday Shopping Spree at Target.

Each kid was given $200 and the chance to spend some time with the NBA All-Star.

"My biggest thing is giving back to the kids," Cousins said. "I was in their position at one point so I'm just doing my part to put a smile on their face and make the holidays a little better for their families."

Although he was unable to attend due to his NBA schedule with the Kings, Cousins made it possible for another holiday shopping spree in his hometown of Mobile, Alabama last week.
