And that Santa isn't the only one helping others. As Today.com reported, Secret Santas across the United States have paid off almost $500,000 in layaway gifts this year.
"We have people doing some incredible things throughout the year," Wal-Mart spokesman Wyatt Jefferies told Today, "but we've never seen this happen where we have so many six-figure amounts being paid off in different areas."
