WYOMING, Mich., Sept. 30 (UPI) -- A Michigan couple held signs at a roadside and gave out 100 $1 bills to passing motorists as a reverse-panhandling project.

Riley and Hermi Combs of Grandville stood at a Wyoming intersection Saturday afternoon with a sign reading, "NO, I Am Not Homeless, I Am Not Hungry. Can I Give YOU A Dollar," WOOD-TV, Grand Rapids, Mich., reported Monday.

The couple's granddaughter, Ami Walker, said the couple have a history of doing good deeds for strangers.

"They also bought scads of 31-day bus passes and randomly handed them out while riding the Rapid so that people whose passes were expiring could have more, and for some to be able to see ArtPrize," Walker said. "They are so active in the Grand Rapids community and do this so often. They're just awesome people. They do it for fun to get to know people."
