Tyler Perry’s Good Deed

COVID-19 has caused a huge shift in the universe. Everyone has been confined to their homes and people are dying left and right. This is a scary time for everyone but there is one person that is trying to make things a little easier. Tyler Perry is giving back to his hometowns New Orleans and Atlanta. Perry surprised elderly shoppers by paying off their grocery bills.

The entertainment mogul paid off bills at 73 stores during the hours that are dedicated to the elderly. “There are a lot of people struggling right now and underprivileged and I wanted to go to the heart of where we are and what we need. My Mother always told me to not wait for help! Be your own help!,” Perry told CBS This Morning. This act of kindness is the light the world needs in this seemingly never ending tunnel. Thank you, Mr. Perry.
