1. A woman in Massachusetts forgot to scratch the last number on a lottery ticket, and threw it in the store’s trash because she thought it was worthless. But then one of the owners found it . . . realized it hit for a MILLION BUCKS . . . and gave it back to her.
2. Instead of asking for gifts, an eight-year-old in Wisconsin donated stuffed animals to a good cause for the SECOND birthday in a row. Last year, he gave away 111 brand new stuffed animals. This time, he ended up with 308 of them.
3. As a graduation gift, a community college in northern California forgave every graduate’s remaining student debt. It was only an average of $214 per student, but 85% of people enrolled at Contra Costa College are low- or middle-income.
4. This focused on one city, but we hope it was true everywhere. A study in Toronto found people started tipping more as soon as the pandemic hit.
