Ahhh I love this story!! Last week in Kennett Square, Pennsylvania, a Secret Santa walked into a Walmart store and paid off $29,000 in layaway gifts purchased by various Christmas shoppers. “When customers quietly pay off others’ layaway items, we’re reminded how good people can be," Walmart said in a statement. "We’re honored to be a small part of these random acts of kindness.” And it happened last week in Colorado!  A Secret Santa paid off the entire layaway section ,$45,000, at a Walmart. (Read more about that here.)  As The Philadelphia Inquirer notes, in 2015 Secret Santas paid off some $500,000 in layaway tabs at Walmarts in three states alone, including Pennsylvania. I wish I had that much money to pull this off but it has got me thinking what I could do for the holiday season......
