Chicago Bears cornerback and all-around nice guy Charles "Peanut" Tillman is easily our favorite of the Bears bunch.

When he's not raising money for his Charles Tillman Cornerstone Foundation -- a charitable organization he created to "provide opportunities and resources to children and their families who are in need" -- stripping the ball from opponents and re-tweeting shout-outs from fans, the Chicago native is generally being a good-hearted guy.

On Tuesday, Tillman went shopping at a suburban Meijer's to buy toys for children from underprivileged families, ABC Chicago reports.

All that goodwill towards men (and women, and children) is sure to land Tillman on Santa's "nice" list this year. In the spirit of Tillman's latest gesture, we've rounded up a few more reasons "Peanut" really is the sweetest.
