You hear a lot of negative stuff coming out of Hollywood; especially the selfishness of stars all too often. This is not one of those days. We have all heard about Tyler Perry’s generous gift to a bunch of children from the Philadelphia area. Well the kids had their day at the Walt Disney World Resort and Mr. Perry showed up to surprise the kids as well.
Tyler Perry poses with Disney characters and more than 70 campers from Creative Steps in Philadelphia July 31, 2009 at DisneyQuest, an indoor, interactive theme park at Walt Disney World Resort in Lake Buena Vista, Fla.
Earlier this month, the campers were the subject of a story that they were turned away from a local Philadelphia pool. Perry sent each child who was turned away, along with a legal guardian, to Walt Disney World to enjoy the theme parks and other recreational activities at the resort. Perry said he wanted to do something kind for the children to let them know that for every person out there who treated them poorly, there was someone else waiting with an act of kindness.
During a surprise appearance July 31 at DisneyQuest, Perry addressed the children and spoke of racism and challenged each child to live their life to the betterment of the community.
