Secret Santa' showers $100 bills on superstorm Sandy-hit areas

Recommended Posts

NEW YORK ? A Missouri man posing as "Secret Santa" is giving away $100,000 this holiday season and spent a day in New Jersey and New York giving money to people robbed of their belongings or homes by Superstorm Sandy.

But the Kansas City businessman says money is not the issue. It's about random acts of kindness.

Secret Santa started his East Coast visit Thursday in Elizabeth, N.J. In Staten Island, the anonymous benefactor walked up to surprised residents and thrust $100 bills into their hands.

He said he is setting an example and hopes others will follow.

Keeping close watch over the cash handouts was his security entourage -- police officers in uniform from New York and New Jersey, plus FBI agents. Some wore red caps marked with the word "elf." :santa:

This I suppose is what makes the US an amazing place, for all the bizarre things that happen in your country, people still manage to do wonderful things for their fellow citizens! :)

I'd wager this is what makes Human nature an amazing thing, not just America :p

I love this story.. always nice when someone comes through for those going through rough times. It makes me sick when I read or see the news stories about people getting back to their weather damaged home only to find out they were robbed as they evacuated to a safer area.
