*Thanks to Tyler Perry, it's indeed a small world after all for the minority kids who were tossed out of a suburban Philadelphia pool on claims of racism.
The filmmaker is footing the bill for 65 African American and Hispanic children from the Creative Steps day camp in Philly to a day at Walt Disney World, according to reports.
The kids reportedly cheered Monday when they learned about the actor's gift. reative Steps director Alethea Wright says she's thrilled about the offer, especially because Perry "comes from humble beginnings" like the children in her camp.
The Valley Club in Huntingdon Valley has maintained that refunding the camp's swimming fee was not about race but rather a safety issue, in part because many children couldn't swim.
Perry, best known for his signature character Madea, is currently directing the film "Why Did I Get Married, Too?" at his Atlanta studios.
