"I always leave the money in a way that it makes clear that it's done on purpose. Sometimes I roll it up with a little note. Sometimes I leave it right in the street on the sidewalk on a plate ... sometimes with a little bit of text on the plate. It might say "Free Money" or it might say "If you need money take some, if you have money give some".Sal Randolph, Artist

Sal Randolph is an artist from New York City. But today she joined us from Provincetown, Massachusetts.
