A Missouri man has made headlines by traveling to the East coast to pose as “Secret Santa,” gifting $100 bills to many people throughout the New York and New Jersey area who had lost everything to Superstorm Sandy yesterday.
The Kansas City businessman plans to give away $100,000 this holiday, but he says money is not the issue.
“The money is not the point at all….it’s about the random acts of kindness. I’m just setting an example, and if 10 percent of the people who see me emulate what I’m doing, anybody can be a Secret Santa!”
The Missouri Secret Santa (who wishes to keep his identity concealed) took up the holiday tradition from his friend, Larry Stewart, who for years handed out bills each December to unsuspecting strangers in thrift stores, food pantries and shelters. Stewart died in 2007 after giving away more than $1 million to strangers in mostly $100 bills.
