DeSean Jackson takes kids on shopping spree

PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) -- DeSean Jackson hosted 50 children and took them on a holiday shopping spree at a Walmart in South Philadelphia on Tuesday night.

Jackson gave each child a gift card and treated them to a night of shopping through his "Shop with a Jock" event.



"It's an honor. Going on five to six years of me doing this around the holiday time," said Jackson.

The receiver is on Injured Reserve after having abdominal surgery.



There is a chance he could come back if the Birds make a deep run in the playoffs.

"I'm doing everything I can to continuously put myself in the best position to get 100%, and even better than that, 110%. So ya know, just taking it day by day, but we'll see when the time presents itself," said Jackson.
