Tyler Gedelian regularly checks the pockets of donated clothing at his Monroe, Michigan, Goodwill store for loose change. On Wednesday, the 29-year-old store manager and his coworker, Goodwill job coach Laura Pietscher, found more than just a few coins and crumpled receipts: they discovered stacks of $100 bills, stuffed in blue envelopes, in the pockets of some old suits and a robe.
…”I took it out, figuring it was garbage,” Gedelian told Detroit News. “But when I opened the envelope, lo and behold, it was several bands of $100 bills. We might normally find a dollar, or 25 cents, but mostly it’s old Kleenexes and grocery lists.”
The cash totalled more than $43,000.
Without hesitating, Gedelian called the police. “My biggest concern was getting the money back to the rightful owner,” he told the Monroe Evening News. :I certainly can’t imagine losing that kind of money. I was so nervous having so much of someone else’s money.”
Woah Nelly! Over $43,000 found all of which was returned. A beautiful story showing there’s still good in the world. I’ll be sure to do a good deed myself this week, I’m inspired!
