30 Gifts for 30 Strangers

To celebrate his 30th birthday, a Brazilian living in Australia wanted to show his gratitude to the people of Sidney because, he said, "a lot of beautiful things happened in my life" since moving to Australia. With the help of friends, Lucas Jatoba purchased and wrapped 30 presents to give to 30 strangers. The gifts, from a rugby ball, skateboard, teddy bear and huge penguin, to a massage certificate and champagne, focused on fun and relaxation. As his friends shot video, Lucas delivered the gifts to strangers of all ages throughout the city’s parks and plazas. "Thank you to everyone who lives in Australia," he wrote on his blog. "You make this country such a wonderful place."
