Anthony Talley created a program where he collects just $1 from people all around his community to donate to someone in need, and he’s showing how small acts of kindness can add up.

“When I do stuff like this it’s an overwhelming joy,” Talley said. “People say, ‘well what do you plan to get out of this?’ And I tell them I plan to change the world, one life at a time, one dollar at a time.”

The program is called $1 Thursdays, and Talley’s latest charitable effort involves raising money to help a mother of 10 with the purchase of a new car after hers was lost in an accident involving her daughter.

If you’d like to help Talley in his fundraising, he collects through cash app with the user name $AnthonyMauriceTalley and through Venmo at @Anthony-Talley-9.

“Remember the goal is to change the lives of others $1.00 at a time,” he wrote in a recent Facebook post.
