| by Michael Allen

Bob Blackley, who recently turned 57, surprised motorists in a busy intersection in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, by giving away his birthday money to whomever would take it.

Blackley carried a sign that said: "I have a job. I have a home. Could you use an extra $5?"

Using his $285 birthday gift, he handed out $5 bills to drivers, reports WXII-TV.

Later, his wife Carol joined him with envelope of cash, which matched his $285.

Armed with the new loot, Blackley continued giving out money. Blackley said he'll do it again next year, for his 58th birthday.
