After a Salvation Army kettle was stolen from an Oshkosh, Wisc., Walmart, a mysterious man wearing a sign around his neck arrived to help save the day in a most unusual manner.
The man was offering $5 to anyone who needed help, according to Sofia Way, a local resident who wrote about the gift-giver on her Facebook page .
“Are you kidding me….” Way wrote. “This man is AWESOME in front of the Oshkosh Walmart in the falling snow Merry Christmas all!”
The sign said:
I have a job.
I have a car.
I have a roof over my head.
Do you need $5?
Police have released surveillance video of the suspected kettle thief and are asking for information from anyone who may have seen him, according to The Northwestern .
The mystery man with the sign has not been identified, either, but he appears to have reinvigorated the Christmas spirit for some.
