Charity worker finds huge bundle of cash in donated clothes
She initially didn't believe it was real and found the large sum while sorting through clothes and making sure they were in a decent condition to be sold.
Lessing decided that instead of keeping the money for herself, she'd hand it over.
“I have a daughter, I love her very much and you can’t put a price on my daughter,” she told KFOR.
“I know what could be risked stealing that money and I do believe in karma. I do believe that if you do something good, something good will come back to you.”
The anonymous donor was reunited with her money and gifted Lessing $1,300 as a reward.
“Normally we have no way of knowing who the money belongs to,” Frank Holland, Vice President of Donated Goods at Goodwill, told KFOR.
“Even if we wanted to try to give it back to someone, there was no way to find who that person was.”
