(Scroll down for video) Some people are happy to give away money to complete strangers on the street, and that is exactly what one man did, in order to celebrate his 65th birthday.

Doug Eaton wanted to celebrate his birthday on June 11 in a big way, so he turned to his friends of ideas. He finished marking the day with random acts of kindness, including the delivery of free money to people going by him on the street.

"I asked a group of my friends on Facebook what to do for my 65th birthday and I got a long list of things," he told the local news
media. One of my friends said, "Why don’t you do 65 random acts of kindness?”

So that's exactly what he did, spending 65 minutes standing on the corner of NW 39th Street and May Avenue in Oklahoma City, delivering $5 bills for people who passed by.
He told his Facebook friends, that he gave away more than $375, but the responds and the amount of good cheers, were priceless.

From a distance, Eaton looked a bit like any other beggar with a sign on a street corner. But instead of a request for money, his sign said: "I have a house and a car and a job. Do you need some money for coffee.?"
