Tyler Perry Surprises Layaway Shoppers At Two Atlanta-Area Walmarts

08 December 2018

Perry said he had planned to remain anonymous, but "due to some circumstances" news of the generous act leaked, and he chose to post a video on Twitter revealing which stores' layaway tabs he paid.

News that Perry donated $432,635 to the stores.

Tyler Perry is in the giving spirit this holiday season, as he just dropped $434,000 to pay off shoppers' layaways at Walmart.

The Nobody's Fool director confessed he "was trying to do this anonymously", in a Twitter video posted on Thursday.

'I have paid for all of your layaways for Christmas, ' said Perry.

Tyler Perry paid off more than $400,000 worth of layaways at two Georgia Walmart stores.

"I know it's hard times, everyone's struggling and I'm just really, really grateful to be able to be in a position to do this", he said. "You've got to go into the Walmart, pay a penny - one penny - and you get your layaway".

Perry took to his social media accounts to explain that he meant to keep the kind gesture completely anonymous, but the word quickly got out. "Merry Christmas", Perry said to close his video. "The heartfelt excitement and joy we're seeing from our customers as a result of his holiday gift has been touching". Thank you Tyler for this attractive gift!

Like Perry, Benson had hoped to remain anonymous, but enough media outlets picked up the story that the New Orleans Saints confirmed her good deed on Thursday.
