CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Celebrity Nick Cannon was in Charlotte Monday cheering up some kids in our area.

The host of America's Got Talent and better half of Mariah Carey made stops at the Ronald Mcdonald House and Levine Children's Hospital as part of the Celebrity Charity Wishes Bears for Buddies Program.

Families with sick children were given everyday items that they may need and the kids received teddy bears.

Putting smiles on the faces of young people it s a beautiful holiday season, the time of giving. But I always feel like no matter what time of year it is, to whom much is given, much is required. It's a blessing to be able to give, Cannon said.
