20 women were able to be home for the holidays all thanks to rapper Meek Mill.

Mill's nonprofit REFORM Alliance shared on Instagram last week that Mill posted bail for the women who were incarcerated at Philadelphia's Riverside Correctional Facility.

The post was captioned:

"@meekmill has made a heartwarming holiday gesture by paying the bail of women currently incarcerated in Philadelphia."
"The women, who were unable to afford bail, will now be able to spend the holiday season with their families and loved ones."
"Five women were released today and will be reunited with their families, with the goal of 15 more women being released in the coming week."

It finished:

"The women will also each receive a gift cart to purchase groceries or gifts for the holidays."

Viewers of the post commented on his beautiful deed.

In his statement about the kind gesture, Mill said:

"For families impacted by the criminal justice system, the holidays can be an extremely challenging time."
"No one should have to spend the holidays in jail simply because they can't afford bail, and no child should be without their parents during this time if we can do something about it."
"I'm grateful for the opportunity to help these women be with their families and loved ones during this special time of year."

What a beautiful gift. We can't even imagine how happy these women must be to share the season with their families.
