LOUISVILLE, Kentucky (WAVE) -- In the middle of a K-Mart parking lot in Louisville, Kentucky sat a beautifully wrapped box complete with a homemade card signed by total strangers.
Little by little, the gift kept getting bigger.
"I put $10 from me and from my dad's family," said Amber Daugherty as she slipped some money into the box.
With so many families scraping by during the holidays, Brian Bailey started connecting with friends on Facebook.
"I had an idea," he said, "Let's see how far we can go with $5."
One friend told another and so on.
"I thought wow, if we can get enough people together to put $5 in the box, we can make someone's Christmas," Bailey explained.
Five dollars turned into $10 then to $100 and it kept coming.
A random act of kindness was about to turn into a random act of Christmas.
