They hope people will use the cash to help others.

“Really what we’re asking people to do is take the five dollars and pay it forward. Do something good for someone else with this five dollars,” said Eastern Bank Chairman and CEO Robert Rivers.

The giveaway is over, but you can still spread the message of doing good by posting a selfie of your deed.
