If you were walking through a busy train station and saw a bulletin board full of dollar bills, what would you do?

A group in L.A. recently set out to answer that question.

They tacked $40 onto a bulletin board in Los Angeles’ Union Station with a simple message:

The board worked like a charm.

The people who needed money took money.

The people who had money to give gave it.

And the last dollar stayed up on the board for 20 minutes.

“More people definitely gave it was just in smaller amounts,” Bridges said. “Then on the taking side, we had a few people that took in large amounts.”

According to Bridges, the project sent a clear message.

“Everyone has had good days and bad days. Sometimes you need a helping hand and sometimes you can be the one giving a helping hand,” Bridges said. “So don’t be afraid to share the love. Help someone else out.”

“Because you never know how far a little action can go, or when you will need help yourself.”
