Perry recently met with a group of Tanzanian children with albinism who are living in a home the filmmaker helped fund. Perry's representative said Monday, Sept. 7, 2015, he donated $200,000 three years ago to help build a four-bedroom house in New Jersey for the group of children who had been mutilated for their body parts.

Actor and filmmaker Tyler Perry left a $500 tip for a Texas waitress


A Texas waitress had a really good day at work this week.

Luis Cantu posted on Facebook Monday, saying his wife was working at Pearl's Green Vegetarian Cuisine in San Antonio when she spotted a few familiar faces at one of her tables.

It turned out to be filmmaker Tyler Perry and pop-star Janet Jackson, according to the San Antonio Current.

Cantu said Perry left his wife, Nicole Tijerina, a very generous tip of $500 for a $27 bill.

"It couldn't have came at a better time," Cantu wrote on Facebook. "Thank you Lord for always watching over our family and thank you Tyler Perry also. He didn't have to tip like that but for some reason out of the kindness of his heart he did."
