“I know it’s some really hard times and people may be struggling. I’m just glad I’m in a position to be able to do this. Merry Christmas,” he said on Instagram.

That was such a generous gesture Tyler. We’re certain he earned a nice tax break as well but we ain’t mad at him. He made a major impact in the lives of many families in Atlanta that may have needed a helping hand.

THANK YOU and happy holidays!
