A nice and unexpected story in this day and age.A little serendipity to counter the doom and gloom threads. Good luck him...

Two days after a well-wisher set up a fund to help the Boston homeless man who returned a backpack containing $41,900 to the police rather than keeping the goods for himself, more than $130,000 has been raised in show of support for this man’s honesty. This truly is an amazing individual and good karma finally came knocking as a result of his good deeds! /

Bless his soul, this warms my heart and is just a snippet of a real human being. How often do we hear about incidents like this? Out of all the homeless people in america, how many of them would have also done this? Would you have done it if you were homeless....cold and hungry....unemployed...looking like this

It really makes you stop and think about how lucky some of us have it, and how much we take for granted.

Drug deal accidentally intercepted? Ransom? I'm curious what that money was for. Either way good for him! Hope he's uses it meaningfully

He seems like a kind soul. I hope that he uses it to get his life back on track. There are many decent and kind people in the world...... It just doesn't seem like it because the MSM crams negativity and violence down our throats on a daily basis (which is the reason I don't watch it). They would rather tell us about the psycho killed 20 people, than the person who helps abused children, or the person who risked their life to save another......... I wish we would hear more about good things and people like this man.
