San Diego Is All Give And No Take In 'Hidden Heroes' Episode

A hidden camera caught them in the act.

On an episode of Chicken Soup for the Soul's Hidden Heroes, a hidden camera show with a big heart, friends gathered together at San Diego's Mission Beach to give back via a bulletin board and some thumbtacks. They pinned dollar bills to the board, which advised passersby to "take what you need. Give what you can."

But, despite the instructions, something unexpected happened. Watch above for the full reveal.

As one of the do-gooders in the video explained, "No one ever went broke from giving."
