"I think kids for Christmas;" $40K donated to pay off 200 families' layaway gifts at Walmart

Posted: Updated:

An anonymous shopper in Pennsylvania is bringing joy to families.

Someone paid off 200 families' layaway gifts at a Walmart. Store employees said this is the second year it's happened.

The gesture brought one mom to tears; she said her kids are now able to get their gifts.

"I think it means more to me, but I think they'll be happy. I think kids for Christmas -- I remember when I was growing up for Christmas. I was just telling my mom the other day that I want my kids to have Christmas like that."

About $40,000 was donated to pay for the layaway items.
