Secret Santa picks up 3 layaway bills
"This lady came up randomly and said, 'Can I, you know, pay off some people's layaway?'" said Dannell Goddard. Goddard works at Kmart in the layaway department. She told 24 Hour News 8 that when she first heard the request, she was a bit confused.
"I was like, 'Well, are you trying to pick them up? 'Cause you can't pick them up if you don't have an ID," Goddard said. "And [the mystery woman] replied, 'Nope, I just want to help people.'"
The woman looked through several of the about 800 layaway contract tickets at the store. She randomly picked and paid the bill on three of them. She paid about $500 between all three of them and left a $10 balance on each of the accounts

But the story doesn’t end there. Just days after News 8 aired its report on the anonymous Secret Santa and “copycat” Samaritan also paid a visit to the Plainfield Kmart and settled 14 layaway bills totaling around $2,000.
The man, who also says he wishes to remain unidentified says he hopes that his copycatting will inspire other to copycat him.

The best ever Christmas I had while growing up was when things were tight financially and we hand made our gifts. Yes, it was the thought that counted. Somehow, since then all other retail purchased gifts both given and received just haven't had the same feeling. My favorite all time and most cherished gifts are what my children made by hand.
