Pittsburg, Pennsylvania has its own local Santa Claus. For the last ten years, an anonymous businessman goes around the city giving unsuspecting strangers $100 bills at a time, totalling $100,000. Surrounded by police officers acting as his helping elves, “Secret Santa” visits local stores going up to people to gift them. The man upped his gift to a couple hundred dollars for one woman who works at the YMCA and said she was giving part of her money for the after-school program. He finds this year, his goodwill is very needed. He hopes that his work will encourage, “everybody to come together, one act of kindness at a time.” Secret Santa’s work is beyond handing out cash, its about reaching out and showing someone that you care about them. That’s something we can all afford to do.
