Perry Gives Back To Charity

Actor/director TYLER PERRY is helping to keep teenagers off the streets - he has made a generous donation to a youth homeless shelter in Atlanta, Georgia.
The star, who experienced homelessness and hunger as a struggling wannabe, handed over $110,000 (£77,465) to organisers at Covenant House Georgia to contribute to operating and renovation costs.
Perry has also bought a brand new 15-seat van for the charity - and Covenant House president Kevin Ryan is overwhelmed by his kind gesture.
Ryan says, "God bless Mr. Perry for this incredible gift to our kids.
"The van will be used to rescue young people from the hopelessness of the street. His generous donation will provide immediate help to kids in crisis as well as the long-term support that will transform their lives."
