In 2003, Johnson's rookie season, he founded the Andre Johnson Foundation for children and teens growing up in single-parent homes. He has a daughter that was born in February, 2010.
On December 4th 2012, Johnson made headlines around the world when it was shared that he spent over $19,000 for kids aged 8-16 in Child Protective Services to have a shopping spree at Toys R' Us. Johnson's own foundation, the Andre Johnson Charitable Foundation, funded the spree. This is something Andre Johnson partakes in yearly. However, due to a photo circulating of him holding up lengthy receipts, this was the first year the shopping spree generated worldwide attention. After the spree, Johnson also joined the Houston Police Department's Blue Santa program to surprise 800 students at Houston's Bastian Elementary School with Christmas presents.

And twelve oclock arrived just once too often,”
