Comedian Kevin Hart is well-known for generating big laughs.

However, he also has a pretty big heart, donating $50,000 to HBCU Texas Southern University's band after hearing that the Tom Joyner Foundation was trying to send the members to go see Michael Strahan—a famed alumnus known for the most sacks in a single season—inducted into the Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio, Black Enterprise reports.

The beloved radio host was grateful for Hart's support and doubled down on the favor, buying 100 tickets to the star's latest movie, Think Like a Man Too, in return for his support. Joyner gave away the tickets on the air.


"Since Kevin did the $50,000 donation, I thought it would be a great idea to support his movie. So I've bought 100 tickets to the 10 a.m. show," Joyner announced on his show.

Looks like a bunch of good karma is circulating around both men.
