The annual "Secret Santa" cash giveaway has happened again in Charlotte. Anonymous ELFs hand out $100 bills to strangers all over Charlotte - part of the national effort started decades ago by Kansas City, MO, businessman Larry Stewart - in hopes it will inspire them to perform their own random acts of kindness. The ELFs were accompanied by a faithful entourage of CMPD officers, many of whom have been riding along for years. Stops included Merry Oaks elementary, a gas station, and a bus stop on Eastway Drive.
