Everyone loves a deal, and there's no better deal than free money.

But when commuters at Los Angeles' Union Station were recently faced with a bulletin board covered in dollars, many of them made no effort to cash in. In fact, they got into the giving spirit instead.

The board, put up as a project by a group called The Toolbox, originally featured rows of $1 bills and the simple phrase "give what you can, take what you need." As people passed — some taking, some giving — the ones were replaced with fives, tens and more.

At one point in the video, a passerby pinned a $20 bill he'd just found to the board.

"What I can say for the folks that gave the most is that they were full of smiles," The Toolbox's Tyler Bridges told Huffington Post. "There's a certain feeling that giving can do for you and that was definitely apparent in those that gave the most."

By the end of the clip, the board is almost bare, but the good vibes keep adding up. Just watch!
