Tim Tebow brought tears to the eyes of a few Florida families this weekend when the former NFL quarterback unexpectedly showed up at an Orlando Walmart to pay off their layaway tabs.

Tebow was filming a segment for “Good Morning America,” Sunday as part of week-long series in which the show is going across the country to surprise shoppers by paying off their layaway accounts.

In the segment that aired Monday morning, shopper Jasmine Nunes was approached by Tebow at Walmart in Orlando.

Nunes told Tebow about recent hard times her family had experienced and how much it meant to her to have the $220.02 layaway account paid. Her items included gifts for her nieces and a new nephew who will be having his first Christmas.

“Oh my God, thank you!” she cried, hugging Tebow. 

Later, she called her mother, telling her: “Mom you’re never going to believe what just happened. Tim Tebow just paid my layaway!”

In another segment, Tebow paid off the $701 tab for Damara Jarrett in the same Orlando Walmart.

Jarrett said she is a full-time student who had been in a car accident recently and her layaway items included gifts for her two children.

“You don’t understand how hard I’ve been working,” Jarrett told Tebow after hearing the bill was to be paid. "And then I said I was going to take stuff off [the account] because I can’t afford everything, and then this. Just thank you. I just want to cry."
