Tyler Perry knows that the holiday season is all about giving back!

The “Madea” mogul went to two different Walmarts in Georgia and decided to pay off customer’s layaway items. ABC reports that he wrote a check in the total amount of $430,000, which covered a store in East Point and Douglasville, GA.

The movie producer took to social media to make the announcement. In the video, he says that this is his Christmas gift to them. He received tons of love thank you’s from the people he helped and other celebrities like Lala, Tina Lawson, and Tamar Braxton.
