There is a charitable guy in Florida called the “Money Man” who likes to give away his cash to encourage others to do likewise. Check out this story.
Money Man’ Tosses Cash Into Fla. Crowd
ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. – Hundreds of people at a shopping mall fought over nearly $10,000 launched into a crowd by a real estate investor known as the “Money Man.”
Six people were taken to hospitals and six others were treated for cuts and bruises, police spokesman Bill Proffitt said. The most serious injury was a possible broken arm, he said.
Nuts. Crazy. Put a bunch of people in close quarters and expect them to be civil when money is being randomly distributed? What were they thinking?
I would suggest the “Money Man” take a more subtle approach to his giving. I know of people who go to where the poor are and simply hand out money wherever they see a need. I think this is a more practical and less sensational approach.
Would you go to an event where people were giving away money, knowing that others would be battling to get the cash?
