Reed Sandridge lost his job last year, and decided to take up a new hobby. Every day he gives away $10 to someone who looks as if they could use it. Every day it's a different person. And Sandridge expects nothing in return but a good feeling.
Sandridge is using his savings as well as his unemployment benefits for the giveaways. And he tells stories of the people he meets in his blog, which has, in turn, led others to help out as well. Here's Reed's blog: Year of Giving
. Give it a read. You may be inspired as well.
