Your openhanded uncle can't resist giving money to anyone who asks for it — openhanded means generous.
People who are openhanded give freely and kindly, whether they're donating money, giving gifts, or offering help. While you can use the adjective openhanded for many kinds of generosity, it's used most often to refer specifically to money and a person's willingness to part with it. The word has been around since about 1600, and it can be spelled with a hyphen or as two words — open handed — as well as one.
