Tyler Perry stepped in to help a family in need after a mom of 4 was shot and killed by her boyfriend by covering some major expenses for the family.
The Hollywood star was watching the news when he learnt of the tragic death of Tynesha Evans after her boyfriend lured her to a Wells Fargo bank and shot her, according to the police,
Tyler Perry knew he had to help this family, so he decided to give them a call to see how he could be of help.
“It was a call I wasn’t even going to answer. I said, ‘Well, let me answer it to see who it is.’ I answered and the person on the other end said, ‘This is Tyler.’ I said, ‘Who?’ He said, ‘This is Tyler.’ I said, ‘Tyler who?’ and he said, ‘Tyler Perry.’ At that point, I just broke down crying,” Audrey told a local news station.
Tyler then went ahead and paid for the family’s rent so they could still keep their family house and also offered to cover all the funeral costs that included flying Tynesha’s body back to her home state of Wisconsin.
The actor also pledged to pay the college tuition for Sharadiant, Tynesha’s other daughter, who is in her freshman year at Spelman College. Talking to the news station, Sharadiant said, “I’m going to do what she wanted me to do. She started me on math and now I’m going to get to graduate with a mathematics degree from Spelman College without debt, it means everything.”
“We can’t thank him enough,” Sharadiant added.
The most amazing thing about all this is that it isn’t the first time people have been blessed from Tyler Perry’s kindness. Last Christmas he paid for over $430,000 worth of gifts at Walmart layaway, he bought a new van for a local church and also new minivans for women with disabilities.
It is indeed a beautiful thing to witness people use the blessings that God has accorded to them to bless those in need.
