A bank in North Dakota is being celebrated this week for how it gave money away. Fargo's State Bank and Trust opened its annual holiday party with the announcement that each of its 500 employees would be given $1,000 ($500 for part-timers) with instructions to keep on giving to any charity or family they chose as long as it went to people who are in need this Christmas.
