Secret German donor giving cash to the needy

Anonymous person handing out thousands of euros to people in need featured in local newspaper.



    An anonymous donor is slipping thousands of dollars under the doormats of the needy in the German town of Braunshvaig.

    Late last month, a volunteer working in the town's hospice saw something sticking out from under the welcome mat at the institution.

    Inside was 10,000 euros, almost $13,000 in cash, wrapped around a local newspaper article about the annual hospice fundraiser.

    The secret donor continues to send in cash wrapped in stories from the newspaper that covers stories about people in the town who are in need.
     
    A very large majority of the people in the town say the paper should not try to identify the benefactor and say it is wonderful that something like this exists in times like these.
