People Are Awesome: Anonymous Donor Giving Cash to Toronto Cyclists for Their "Leadership"

by Cord Jefferson

March 6, 2011

Toronto cycling enthusiast and blogger Tom Polarbear was pedaling around town this week when an "older woman" approached him and handed him an envelope reading simply, "Thank you." Polarbear says he didn't think much of it—"I thought it might be a flyer or something"—until he passed another cyclist, who held up his envelope from the same woman and asked, "How much do you think is inside?"

It turned out that five dollars was inside, along with a noted, signed by "Anonymous," thanking him for his "very courageous effort bringing cleaner air to Toronto."

Polarbear used the money to buy two lottery tickets.
