An elderly woman loses an envelope containing money for shopping, but the next day someone gives it back to her
When you find a wallet or money laying on the street, you are always faced with a great temptation: pocket it. There is nothing more wrong to do, since the money belongs to someone who simply lost it. Thank goodness, there are still nice people in this world.
Randi Axelrad, a retired school counselor, had lost an envelope containing $ 70, which was a reimbursement for groceries she had already paid for. The envelope fell as the woman walked through a park and remained unnoticed until the next morning when Kim DeRosa, an honest individual, picked it up.
Kim DeRosa, of Westfield, found the cash on Friday morning and posted that she wanted it returned to its owner on the Westfield, NJ Facebook group.
TAPinto Westfield wrote about it and after seeing the story in the website’s email news on Saturday morning, Axelrad contacted the reporter, who put her in touch with DeRosa.
“She put my envelope in another one with my name on it. I opened her envelope and then mine,” Axelrad replied. “I offered her a reward of appreciation for finding and reporting my lost money, but she refused to take it. As a result of her good deed, I was and still am filled with tears of joy.
“Thank you and Kim again for solving my mystery. I still believe that there is good in this world. This proves it!”
This type of news makes it impossible not to regain some faith in humanity!
