Tyler Perry is getting a jump on the giving this year and spreading holiday cheer across Atlanta. The movie mogul and Madea creator paid off more than $430K at two Atlanta Walmarts.

On December 6, Tyler Perry posted an Instagram video announcing to his followers that if they had put up a layaway in East Point, Georgia or at a select Walmart in Douglasville, Georgia by 9:30 that morning, they could go ahead and pick it up because he paid for it.

Perry wanted to remain unanimous, which is a bit hard to do nowadays.

“Trying to do this anonymously but, um, due to some circumstances y’all know how nothing stays secret these days,” he explained in a video. “So, I just wanted to go ahead and tell you.”

Recipients of this Christmas blessing only needed to take a penny to claim their layaways. MERRY CHRISTMAS TO 1500 GEORGIA FAMILIES!
