Selena Gomez's new partnership with Coach isn't only about wearing the clothes and co-designing a new collection, it also includes taking part in the brand's philanthropic work with Step Up, an organization that supports girls in under-resourced communities to pursue an education. Yesterday, the singer donated her time to the cause with a sweet surprise.

Gomez made an appearance at Step Up after school events at two local LA high schools, surprising the unsuspecting young women who were there. They were clearly very excited to see her:

"I'm happy to be here," she told the students, before taking pictures and hanging out with them.

Gomez talked to the girls one-on-one about their goals and after school activities:

She helped make a few crafts too:

She even gifted them with new Coach bags:

And there were plenty of hugs given:

After the event Gomez reflected on the experience on Instagram. "It's crazy to me how much they are willing put others before themselves," she wrote in the caption.
