A North Carolina man recently spent his 59th birthday standing on a street corner in Winston-Salem, handing out $5 bills.
For the third year in a row, Bob Blackley has stood on the corner, holding up a sign to cars on September 4 offering money. This year he gave away $800 to 160 people.
Drivers are typically surprised because it looks like this clean-shaven man is begging for money with a cardboard sign. Once close enough to read the sign, it says: I HAVE a HOME, I HAVE a JOB, COULD YOU USE an EXTRA $5.00?
Many people tell him they have enough and ask him to give to someone who needs it more.
