Shoppers who went to the mall at Massapequa, Long Island on Christmas Eve were surprised by two middle-aged guys who were randomly handing out cash to passers-by. Mall security called the police on them (sigh), but ultimately the guys were left alone to distribute their money to people as they entered the mall.
“These two brothers say they do this every year. They say they’ve been blessed and just want to give something back,” Detective Sergeant Anthony Repalone said. “They gave it to people who they thought needed it. The people were very appreciative.”
Police declined to identify the brothers, respecting their wish to remain anonymous.
