Tyler Perry Paying Off $434,000 In Walmart Layaways Inspired These Celebrities To Do The Same In Compton

Talk about influence.

Published December 24, 2018

Earlier this month, when Tyler Perry decided to bring holiday cheer to families by paying off $434,000 in layaways at two Atlanta Walmarts, we are sure he didn’t know how much it would inspire other celebrities to be generous. 

According to Page Six, a source revealed supermodel Cindy Crawford and her husband, Rande Gerber, paid off all the layaway bills at a Walmart in Compton, California, after being “inspired by Kid Rock and Tyler Perry’s generosity.” 

Talk about influence!

Although the amount was not disclosed, the source continued, “hundreds of families will have very happy children this Christmas thanks to the Gerber family.”

We are happy to see celebrities paying it forward. This is what this time of year is all about… Happy holidays!
