In Kansas City, a man with a fake white beard has been handing out $100 bills to those in need. Bringing joy, happiness, and even tears to those who receive the money.
With the recession in full swing, money is tight and jobs are hard to come by. People who have lost their jobs struggle to find it hard to make ends meet. Whether it is bills for homes and utilities, medical bills, or even gifts for Christmas, people are having a hard time paying for them.
This man, who said he wishes to remain anonymous, finds people anywhere and everywhere. He has found people in shelters, in thrift stores, as well as on the street.
Granted, not everyone, actually most, people do not have money to just give to strangers out of the goodness of their heart. This man however, will give about $40,000 this month. That number is amazing! He has no second thoughts to even stop.
He claims that he will keep giving money until “the money runs out”. When we talk about society in this recession, we don’t think of those who are still giving. We think of those who have to work two or even three jobs just to pay bills.
The recession is real. But so are people who care. People are willing to still give, when others have nothing to keep their heads above the water line. The world needs these people.
