An anonymous, wealthy businessman from Kansas City has been lifting the holiday spirit of strangers for the past 12 years by handing out extra cash to those “who look as though they could use a little boost”. With the help of a dozen local police officers, he hits up a few cities and hands out anywhere between $100,000 and $200,000 each holiday season — all in the form of $100 bills. Mystery Santa said he looks for people who have sadness on their faces so that he can “give them hope that their life can be changed.”
“Our mission as humans is to do random acts of kindness. Kindness is the bridge between all people,” the anonymous businessman told the US media.
