Chance The Rapper is in the lead for the Awesome Human Being award.

In an effort to provide a bit of warmth this winter, the Surf rapper launched a charitable campaign in which he asked fans to donate money to the purchase of the EMPWR coat.

The campaign titled “Warmest Winter” aimed to purchase jackets from the Empowerment Plan of Detroit. The full-length coat is water resistant and self-heating and doubles into a sleeping bag as well as a carrying bag for the homeless.

While Chance, who welcomed a baby girl earlier this year, didn’t deliver a follow up to Acid Rap, the charitable effort, which raised $60,000 in just 10 days, is just as dope a holiday present.
