Sometimes, the people with the least give the most of what they have. A kindhearted businessman, who we’ll refer to as ‘Secret Santa’ set out to prove this as true earlier this week in Phoenix, Arizona. ‘Secret Santa’ approached a homeless man, Moses Elder, and gave him $3,000 to hand out throughout the day to people as he saw fit. As strangers scurried by Moses without taking a glance, the gentle people who dropped some loose change in his cup were in for a surprise. Hundred dollar bill after hundred dollar bill, Moses watched as their faces lit up, some almost brought to tears. In the end ‘Secret Santa’ gifted Moses as well, but he says the experience was the best gift he could’ve received.

David and Vanessa Surles of Capitol Heights, Maryland, were heartbroken when they found that their Christmas decorations had been stolen last week. While at Home Depot purchasing new decorations, they received a notification through their Ring Doorbell Camera that a couple of Prince George’s County police officers were at their home. The officers leaned in and told the couple to put their decorations down, they had brought plenty with them. By the time they returned home, the Surles were greeted with several blowup Christmas decorations of Santa, snowmen, penguins and other characters across their lawn. The officers wish to remain anonymous, as they did this out of the goodness of their hearts.
Love Thy Neighbor
When Ken, an elderly man from Barry, Wales, passed away he left behind a few gifts for his neighbor. Owen Williams was greeted at his door by Ken’s daughter shortly after his passing. She handed him a plastic sack and Owen was a bit confused. As he hoisted the bag on the counter and began to empty its contents, the daughter explained how her father had been purchasing Christmas gifts for Owen’s 2-year-old daughter for the next 14 years! Kindness truly is the gift that keeps on giving.
