A few years ago a doctor in Portland, Oregon, began going about the city quietly giving a $100 bill to one person each day. Jill Ginsberg didn't know any of the people to whom she handed this money. It simply seemed to her that they needed it -- and that she needed to give it away.
Dr. Ginsberg suffered from a chronic fear that she would someday run out of money. She wanted to try something radical to cure it.
