Secret Santa Looks for the Lost

A businessman from Kansas City has been dubbed "Secret Santa" because he anonymously hands out cash every Christmas to those in need. Each year, he gives $100 bills to dozens of people, and sometimes gives $1,000 or more. He says he looks for "people who have that lost look in their eyes. There are certain people who are really in bad trouble, and they need a lift."
