Many drivers commonly see homeless people carrying cardboard signs asking for money at intersections, but commuters who passed Doug Eaton on Wednesday were surprised instead that he was handing out money.
In honor of his 65th birthday, Eaton decided to distribute free money to people, advertising his giveaway with a hand-painted sign that read: "I have a home and a car and a job. Do you need a few bucks for some coffee?"
The Oklahoma City man gave away five-dollar-bills for 65 minutes to anyone who wanted to take them.
He told the ABC news crew it was the best birthday gift ever. “It’s just been fantastic. Some people who don't take the money say, ‘Man, I love what you are doing. Give it to someone who needs it.’”
