“The reason why I liked this is because it was something that people were working toward,” Beck said on his show. “They weren’t asking for a handout.”
In one of the videos, a customer was brought to tears when an employee called to notify her that her layaway was completely paid off.
Beck’s family decided not to receive large Christmas presents this year in order to give more to layaway orders. He said this was the start of a tradition and that he hoped he would always be able to give the same gift every year.
“As long as the Lord gives me strength and the ability to do that, I want to do that every year,” Beck said.
The commentator also challenged other members of the media to start doing the same as a way to give back.
