RICHMOND, Va. -- In an effort to make Christmas brighter for those in the community, CBS 6 and Virginia Credit Union have teamed up to present the Month of Giving.

Every day, a member of the CBS 6 family will be out in the community surprising someone with a holiday gift.

Alex and Tyler, who host our social media segment "Hashtag RVA" on Instagram and Facebook, surprised a group of Richmond teenagers who are making waves on the Virginia music scene and using their success to give back.

Rap group "YNT" which stands for Young and Turnt, used the money they made from a recent performance to buy Thanksgiving turkeys to hand out to their neighbors in Mosby Court.

Alex and Tyler surprised the young musicians a few weeks ago, to thank them for their generosity and for being positive role models within their community.

Brightening the community's Christmas season is part of CBS 6's Month of Giving mission. Watch for the CBS 6 Month of Giving each day this December on CBS 6 News and WTVR.com.
