There is something about the holiday season that makes people feel just a little bit more giving, and that attitude was on full display this week when a Good Samaritan decided to do something very nice for holiday shoppers.
A popular YouTube channel host went to a local mall and did a relatively simple deed: He handed people a red envelope and then walked away.
Inside the envelope people found either $100 in cash or a gift card. What made this truly special, though, wasn’t the surprise element of the gifts – it was the reactions. Some people were moved to tears; others were at a loss for words.
“My goodness,” said a mother who was sitting in a food court with her baby when she got the envelope.
At the end of the clip, the creator urges everyone to keep the spirit of the video going. He asked everyone to do one nice thing for another person and then post it online using the hashtag #15SecondsOfGood.
After everything that has happened this year, particularly over the last few months, it is great to know that there are still a lot of great, kind and generous people left in this world.
