If you’re like most people, the holiday season often means some a bit of penny-pinching to make sure your loved ones have lots of gifts under the tree.
One real-life secret Santa decided to make Christmas that much better for some lucky families this year.
When he was shopping for his own gifts at Toys-R-US, Charlie K., a dad living in Philadelphia, was inspired to spread holiday cheer by paying off more than $10,000 in layaway items at the store.
“I realized how fortunate I am to provide for my son,” says Charlie, “so I decided it would be great to help people in my community by paying it forward and paying the layaways off… as much as I could.”
Better yet, Charlie’s generosity inspired Rachael to send a $10,000 check to the layaway department of our local Toys-R-Us in the Bronx, as well.
And Rach gave Charlie *two* special holiday dinners, too. What a merry Christmas for all!
