A mystery benefactor has been handing out “surprise bags” (wundertüete) of money—more than €200,000—for local causes in the German city of Brunswick. The bags have been appearing at regional newspaper the Braunschweiger Zeitung with instructions on which charity the money should go to.
A hospice, churches in need of repair and a bureau for crime victims are among causes to have benefitted. The donor’s identity is a mystery. “We simply don’t know, and we don’t want to endanger these good deeds,” says journalist David Mache.
