Calling himself Secret Santa, an anonymous businessman doled out scores of $100 bills Tuesday in Reading, one of America's poorest cities.
In all, about $20,000 was given out by the light-haired, clean-shaven man, who sported a red shirt and a red cap with the word Elf on the back as he was accompanied by police at a bus station and other locations.
The generosity brought at least two people to tears, as seen on a Reading Eagle video.
"There's a lot of happiness that comes of this," he says in the footage. "I get more out of this than they do."
