On 28 September 2013, Riley and Hermi Combs went to the intersection of Byron Center Avenue and 44th Street in Wyoming, Michigan, and did some reverse panhandling. They held up a sign that stated, “NO, I Am Not Homeless, I Am Not Hungry. Can I Give YOU A Dollar?” Then they handed out 100 $1 bills one at a time to drivers. The couple’s granddaughter said that her grandmother, Hermi Combs, said that they had a lot of fun doing the prank. The couple’ daughter, Ami Walker, said that Riley and Hermi Combs had done other good deeds: “They also bought scads of 31-day bus passes and randomly handed them out while riding the Rapid so that people whose passes were expiring could have more, and for some to be able to see ArtPrize. They are so active in the Grand Rapids community and do this so often. They’re just awesome people. They do it for fun to get to know people.”
