A wealthy businessman who becomes Secret Santa each holiday season has changed up his operations to be COVID-safe. He usually hands out hundreds of $100 bills to random strangers, but this year, he mailed packages to carefully selected essential workers across the U.S. and got some help letting them know from Steve Hartman at CBS.
Hartman met with the lucky recipients virtually to share the GOOD news, instructing them to open the packages they got, which had $1-thousand in cash inside. Some of the essential workers included are Ashton Dooley, a sanitation worker from Sarasota, Florida whose new wife is battling cancer. Elgin Thrower, a security guard with a special needs son, and Danielle Dip, a waitress who’s way behind on her rent.
"You know kindness, when freely given, with no expectation in return – is, in fact, unconditional love," Secret Santa said. "And that's really what we're giving them."
