Tyler Perry upholds his reputation as a notable philanthropist with his latest act of generosity. The entertainment star announced on his Instagram on Thursday that he had paid for all of the items that customers had on layaway at two different Walmart locations in Atlanta, Georgia.
In the Instagram video, Perry said, “I know it’s hard times and a lot of people are struggling, I’m just really really grateful to be able to be in a situation to do this. So God bless you. Go get your stuff.” It was reported that Perry covered layaway balances for approximately 1,500 people, totaling $434,000.
In such trying times, it’s great to see those we look up to making a difference, especially during the holiday season.
