MEGGIE DIALS, 31
Profession: Channel sales manager at Indianapolis-based software company ExactTarget
Obsession: Random gift giving through her initiative, thesussyproject.com
Define "sussy." A gift given for no reason. What's The Sussy Project? We take sussy nominations through our website. Then every week we give one nominee a $20 gift.
How many have you given so far? Sixty-two since June 2011.
Best nominee? Biker Santa. He sits outside a Starbucks and holds people's dogs while they run in.
Most touching gift? Planting 20 trees in a national forest in memory of a child who passed away.
Best you've received? Running socks! I'm a runner, and I have no idea who sent them.
Why sussy? I want to help people realize how easy it is to be kind. — Marnie Hanel
DIY sussy: "Pay for the coffee of the person behind you in line," Dials says. "Even tiny gestures have a big impact."
