    Anonymous Donor Giving Cash to Toronto Cyclists

    http://www.good.is/post/people-are-a...ir-leadership/


    Apparently an older woman is going around Toronto giving cyclists some cash. Has anyone gotten one of these while commuting?

    I think that's pretty cool.

    I would cherish the letter more than the money. What an awesome gesture.

    Agreed. That letter would mean more to me than the money. That will end up on a discreet part of my cubicle.

    I thought the amount of money would be more before I read the full article, but that's still a cool thing to do. Random acts of kindness can be the best kind.

    "These poor people riding a bike, they must really need money!"

    Kidding aside, it's an awesome thing to do. Random approval makes ya feel all fuzzy inside.

    You've got a bike, so you gotta move.

    If I got a letter like that, I'd take the money and apply it to the bill for making the letter into a T-shirt.
