What motivated man to share money to strangers

When contacted, Ayo, a multimedia journalist, told Legit.ng that he was motivated by the fact that people were going through a lot of challenges.

His words:

"A lot of people are struggling, and I thought if we did community outreach touching the lives of random people, it'd bring hope and make them happy. People have been complaining about the current realities that we live in, and that inspired my decision. There are people who, no matter how little the kindness is, when you give it to them, you just lessen the burden on their neck."

Ayo said he first shared the idea on Twitter and got a financial donation of N10,000 from a friend.

He told Legit.ng:

"I tweeted about doing this on my Twitter account. Initially, I said if I had N100,000, I would commit it to that cause, but my friend, Dotun Omiyale, reached out and gave me N10,000. So I planned with Aisha Olagunju, a friend, to share N2000 with five people in the Bere area of Ibadan."
