Tyler Perry put a lot of smiles on a lot of faces after announcing that he paid for all layaways at two Georgia Walmarts. He took to Instagram to share the news.
“If you have a layaway at the Walmart 844 Cleveland Ave in East Point Georgia in Atlanta or if 7001 Concourse Parkway Douglasville, Ga and it was in there as of 9:30 this morning, I have paid for all of your layaways for Christmas,” he 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 position to do this, so go get your stuff! Merry Christmas!”
Tyler says he was trying to do this deed anonymously, but y’all know how the cat always gets let out of the bag early these days! He says “due to some circumstances,” that he decided to just let everyone know himself. I know you’re wondering if there’s a catch? Tyler says that all the recipients have to do is a pay a penny upon claiming their layaway orders.
Mama Knowles, along with many others have commented on Tyler’s efforts.
“Hi Tyler, I love what you do!! You are the perfect example of one of my favorite scriptures, “to [whom] much is given much is required”,” she commented on his post where he shared the news.
