"Secret Santa" Settles $40,000 Worth of Layaway Holiday Gift Bills
Christmas has come early for around 200 families in Pennsylvania. An anonymous donor settled around $40,000 worth of layaway holiday gift bills at a Walmart store in Everett over the weekend. The kind-hearted stranger, whom store staff lovingly nicknamed “Santa B,” pulled a similarly generous stunt at the same outlet last year. How cool is that!? Kristen Martin, who’d put her children’s Christmas presents on layaway this year, told NBC-affiliate WJAC-TV how much the gesture meant to her: “I think it means more to me, but I think they’ll (her children) be happy. I remember when I was growing up for Christmas. I was just telling my mom the other day that I want my kids to have Christmas like that.” As the countdown to the holiday season continues, similar acts of generosity have also taken place in other parts of the country. Staff at a diner in Scottsdale, Arizona, received a $2,000 tip on a $17 tab over the weekend. Kindness Is Badass!
