Tyler Perry Gives Back

Atlanta (AP)- Tyler Perry has taken on a new project, and this time its coming directly from his heart. Last year, he heard about an 88-year-old woman in Georgia who lost her home to fire. The blaze left Rosa Lee Ransby and her seven grand and great-grandchildren without a place to live. After seeing the story on TV, Perry decided to rebuild the home.  A ceremony to turn the keys over to Ransby was held this past Friday. Perry said the big thing for him was to see the woman have enough space for the kids to play.

    I commend Mr. Perry on his charitable givings. I only wish more people, who are financially able, would follow in his foot steps. Especially in these tough economic times.
