One charitable individual decided to gift large wads of cash to dozens of houses in the West Midlands.
The mysterious benefactor, who targeted homes in Linden Close in Walsall, slipped envelopes containing £50 through the letterboxes of around 60 houses on Christmas Day.

Residents were left shocked by the unexpected act of generosity.

"I wasn't feeling at all festive as I had just finished work and knew I also had to work on Christmas Day - this really changed my mood," said NHS housekeeper Kirsty Tapper.

"It's an amazingly generous thing to do and I am sure this man had helped make Christmas for a lot of people. He's a real life Santa Claus. It really lifts your spirits to think that a total stranger would give away so much money at a time when cash can be so tight."

It is understood that the envelopes had the words 'Jesus loves you' written on the outside.

"I would love to tell him what an amazing person he is," said Tapper.

"It's nice to know there are people out there who still care for others."

I grew up in the West Mids. Wouldn't be surprised at all if this was just someone dumping stolen cash through letterboxes to get heat off him/herself. EDIT - Not sure why the site cut half my text. Never used to do that years ago.
