Celebrity Dopeness : Tyler Perry Gives Woman A New Vehicle, After Hers Is Stolen

 

Tyler Perry (who just announced that he was taking his creative talents to Oprah Winfrey's OWN) has been known to be a true giver. Close friends (and strangers for that matter) have shared that he often gives back and shows gratitutde for those that work with and for him. And recently, he gave back to a complete stranger. According to reports, he donated a new vehicle to a Georgia woman with cerebral palsy after her specially-equipped van was stolen outside Atlanta. What motivated him? Perry told an Atlanta station that he decided to give Alicia Day a brand new van after he saw a news report about the theft this week. Authorities say Day's 2000 Chrysler Town and Country van was stolen from her Decatur driveway sometime Sunday night. Day, who uses a wheelchair, told WSB she prides herself on being independent and works part-time as a greeter at Home Depot. Her mother relied on the van to take Day to work and to doctor appointments. Day said "my mouth just dropped to the floor" when she learned Perry would give her a new van. (How dope is that!!??) And in non-related news, Tyler is covering the November 2012 issue of Essence magazine.
