The holiday season is all about giving, and one man in New Jersey takes that to heart.
The man, who preferred to not have his face shown on the news, has been giving $100 Toys “R” Us gift cards to complete strangers in Newark. All of the gift cards were purchased with his own money.
But the generous gesture isn’t a random act of kindness: this man has been giving out the gift cards since 2013 as part of the Veronica Project, and many people have joined his cause. The idea came about when the man was in line behind a woman who couldn’t afford her purchases at Toys “R” Us. He says that he wished that he had stepped in to help her pay, but he didn’t. Regretting that decision, he wanted to find a way to help those who might be in similar situations. So he created the Veronica Project to spread joy during the holiday season.
Just look how happy these people are when they’re handed the gift cards — those who accepted them walked away ecstatic, relieved that this year, a small burden has been lifted off their shoulders.
