Bob Blackley’s birthday is a good day for his neighbors in Winston-Salem, NC. Every year on his birthday, for the last 3 years, Bob has stood on a street corner handing out money to strangers. The first year, it was $700, then $750, and now $800. That’s a $5 bill for 160 people. Bob doesn’t care who the people are, or what they plan to do with the money. He says, “Anything they want, if it puts a smile on their face, it’s theirs.”


“There are those who give with joy, and that joy is their reward.”
~ Khalil Gibran
