Woman Pays Toys 'R' Us Layaways at A Massachusetts Store, Because The Holiday Spirit Is Real
If you were looking to find love in a hopeless place this Friday afternoon, look no further because a woman in Bellingham, Massachusetts paid off Toys 'R' Us layaway accounts for 150 people who were collectively in $20,000 worth of debt to the toy store. In an official statement, Toys 'R' Us stated the obvious, saying "This incredible act of kindness is a true illustration of holiday giving at its best." The woman made the donation anonymously, but a Massachusetts paper reported that it was a local resident who said paying off layaways would help her "sleep better at night," which leaves me wondering whether I could convince her to do the same for my college tuition, you know, for the sake of her sleep.
This isn't the first "layaway angel" our time has seen. In 2013 a man paid off $21,000 worth of layaways at a Walmart in central Florida because he overheard a woman talking about how she couldn't afford to, and earlier this week Tim Tebow from Good Morning America surprised shoppers by paying their layaways on live television. If you want to participate in making someone's holiday season a little bit easier, you can also pay away someone's layaway and be someones layaway angel.
