An Act of GoodWill
Kindell Keyes works in a Goodwill store in Queens, N.Y. One day she was sorting through donations and found a lot of cash in a donated purse.
“I started looking around like, who’s setting me up? There’s no way,” Keyes said. But it was no joke; the two brothers from California who donated a deceased grandmother’s property had no idea the 101-year-old had hidden the money in her purse.
Keyes turned the money over to her manager who was able to track down the brothers. “It’s just so good to know that there’s people like Kindell in the world,” one of the brothers said, “It’s remarkable.”
“The money didn’t belong to me,” Keyes said. “I believe in karma. You do good, good things happen to you, so I’m not going to keep something that don’t belong to me.”
Goodwill rewarded her honesty with $3900.
