Secret Santa Enlists The Help Of Law Enforcement To Spread Cheer

No matter how much evil there is in the world, there are people out there who are genuinely good. These incredible folks would give their shirts off their backs for someone in need, donate their riches to the poor and sell off their land to help others succeed.
One such person is a kind-hearted businessman from Kansas City, Missouri who chooses to remain anonymous. This wonderful man acts as a "Secret Santa" year after year, blessing unsuspecting people with money. Somehow, he manages to find the people who need help the most during this expensive holiday season.
This year, he decided to enlist the help of the city's police force. And boy, will their teamwork and generosity bring you to tears.
Armed to the brim with $100 bills from none other than Secret Santa himself, a team of police officers took to the streets. They were instructed to look for the citizens who need a little extra help the most. At first, the task seemed impossible. But then, their minds really started to churn - they could do this for the Big Man in Red.
The officers took Santa's message to heart. They carefully targeted those driving dented, beaten-up cars, people left to walk in frigid winter temperatures, the homeless, and others who could definitely benefit a cash bonus on Christmas!
One woman was far from pleased when she was pulled over for Santa's mission. She had no idea that the officers' intentions were pure. When they asked how her day was going, she snarkily responded:
"I'm good until you pulled me over."
Instead of snapping back, the officer handed over a $100 bill and said:
"Okay, well, on behalf of Secret Santa, he wants you to have this, OK?"
This same scene played out time and time again. Rather than present motorists with an expensive ticket, the officers got to bring happiness with wads of cash.
The "Secret Santa" told CBS News that he hopes the officers enjoy being the bearers of good news just as much as the civilians love accepting the money. A reporter asked him what he hoped the officers got out of the exchange and Santa responded:
"Joy. You know, as tough as they are they have hearts that are bigger than the world."
Not only were the people who received the money overwhelmed with happiness, but each officer felt the pure joy of giving a gift that made a difference. Together, the officers and civilians shared tears, handshakes and hugs.
