Miracles in ATL! Tyler Perry Blesses Out of Work Restaurant Workers With A $21,000 Tip

Tyler Perry paid it forward at an Atlanta restaurant this past weekend, leaving a tip of $21,000 for out of work restaurant employees impacted by the coronavirus lockdown.


The filmmaker provided 42 workers, at one of his favorite Atlanta restaurants, with $500 in tips apiece, giving back to the community that supports his 330-acre film studio.

Driving into work today I saw these signs on the highways being changed. My eyes filled with water knowing what God has allowed to happen in my life. Atlanta has truly been the promised land for me. I came here with nothing, lived off Sylvan Road, ended up homeless and starving, but I was always praying and believing. I was always keeping the faith, knowing that if I worked hard, did my absolute best, kept my integrity, honored every blessing, and remained grateful through it all that everything would work out. And it has, thank God. But to all of you looking at my life now, I want to share a scripture/prayer that helped me keep going from St. Mark 9:23-25. It’s a simple prayer by a man who had faith, a man who believed, but still had doubts. He said, “LORD I believe but help my unbelief.” Even in my darkest times when I wanted to give up, I kept believing, and I asked God to help me to believe past any naysayer, any doubt, and any problem. Just know that it is possible to believe in your dream and still wonder how or when it’s going to happen. Stay the course. Pray, work, believe and repeat. You’ll get there. Just believe for as much as you can, and ask God to help you believe for the rest!

This is not the first time that Perry has shown his philanthropist side during unprecedented times because in the wake of Hurrican Dorian last year, he sent a plane filled with supplies down to the Bahamas after many were displaced and in need after the natural disaster.
