Residents of the tiny town of Earlham, Iowa recently found a surprise gift in their mailboxes last week. Each of the town’s 549 households received an envelope with three $50 gift cards inside, two for local restaurants and one for the local grocery store. The generous gift comes from an anonymous donor and not even Mayor Jeff Lillie knows who it is.
That comes out to more than $82-thousand the donor spent altogether, more than $27-thousand at each business.
The mayor said, “it's one of the biggest things that's ever happened to this small town.”
