What a beautiful story. If it's true, I hope he far surpasses the 100K in donations.

This is how society should function on a normal basis (e.g. give credit where it is due vs giving credit to the lowest-life-form on the planet with the most amount of money and corruption ---- sorry for the extra-curricular verbiage).

Stand-up and speak aloud your truths, as they will serve to guide the next generation of crazy/truth-seeking bastards....

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 46613905


I'm from Boston and my understanding of this homeless man is that he isn't the typical, stereo-type drug addict/alcoholic homeless man. And I tend to believe that because if he was, why wouldn't he be dishonest and keep at least the cash part of what he found? It wasn't all traveler's checks. However, I 100% understand being cynical of it. I was actually speaking to someone earlier tonight about this story and how it's a wonderful story if completely true, but that my mind can't help but to wonder if it maybe isn't so pure. And honestly, that sucks! It sucks to have to think that way based on the reality of a good number of people these days. I'm personally going to do my best to believe that this man is actually one of the good souls left in this world. They do exist, homeless or not, that is actually quite irrelevant. Good souls/human beings do still exist. We're out there. I choose to believe he is one of them and that this story is legit, and I hope I am right. This would be a beautiful example to set for others in this world.

Wow what an awesome story. It would of been hard finding $40,000 and just handing it in not knowing where you were going to get that next meal. If it were me I might not have been able to be so honest, so he deserves everything he gets :)

There are many good people out there. It's just the communities and social bonds are not as strong as before, so they may appear less.

Why is it a homeless person always finding money?
Who puts even a single dollar bill in a backpack?
Do homeless people have back accounts, paypal, or indiegogo?

Re: Homeless man finds $40k, hands it in, and people donate to him $100k!
just seen a clip on the news. the homeless man looks like a really nice dude! he deserves a reward

what im less cool about is the guy who began the fund for him. he said that he doesnt see it as a pile of money to just go have a good time with. he hopes this will mean good things for the homeless man

so, he wants to dictate and control how this money is spent. sounds like a bit of a controlling creep to me, with a dash of ego to boot

cant answer the last question but if you are homeless i would say youre more likely to spot and find lost property. youve got no where to go, and you hang around public places alot, so it figures?

drug money? a bribe?

dont know who the money belongs to?
