A Good Trend

First it was Tyler Perry. Then it was Kid Rock (yes, Kid Rock). And now...would you believe Glenn Beck? From Radio Online...

As reported by The Dallas News and other media outlets, Premiere Networks syndicated personality Glenn Beck played Santa Claus and paid off $27,000 worth of layaway items at a North Richland Hills Walmart in Texas. It all happened on Saturday, December 8, just two days before the final payments were due. Joining a growing trend of celebrities this season, Beck said he was inspired by actor and filmmaker Tyler Perry, who paid off all the layaway accounts at two Atlanta Walmart stores.

Beck and his family, who were on the way to a Christmas party, broadcast via Facebook live as they walked into Walmart and met with the layaway department to pay each account individually. In a video, Beck challenged other conservative media personalities, including Mark Levin, Steven Crowder and Bill O'Reilly, to do the same.

"You don't have to spend the money that Tyler Perry or I spent," Beck told his radio listeners on Monday. "You can just go in and just give $100, or $50, or $10. You are not going to believe what a difference it makes."
