Comedian and actor Tyler Perry is giving back in a big way.
Perry decided to pay off layaway items at two different Atlanta area Walmart stores, dropping over $400K to pay off outstanding balances. Perry posted a short video on his Twitter account explaining how people can pick up their items and which stores got the benefit of his holiday giving spirit.

Perry owns a studio company that is located in Atlanta, so that’s probably why he chose the area Walmarts to give back to the community.
