A Secret Santa went to Reading, Pennsylvania, reportedly because it was the poorest city in America, with the goal of handing out $20,000 in cash to random people in thrift stores, laundromats and bus stops who look like they could use a helping hand.
He chose to remain anonymous but allowed TV cameras to trail him, providing a rare glimpse into the joy that can be spread by one generous man in red tee shirt and beret.
“I get more out of it than they do,” he enthusiastically told the press.
He asked only that the recipients pass on a little kindness to someone else.
It was clear that the Secret Santa had done this before and encouraged more people who are fortunate to take up his vocation.
