Sup Travellers?! In order to survive in this world, money is the sh*t. Some people may disagree with me but unless your name is Tarzan or Mowgli, there is only so far a human can go without money in this day and age. Money means food, money means shelter, money means transport, money means......INTERNET. LOL. So for someone with no money to find a bag of money should be like rain in the dessert desert. However that is not the case for all. Read on.


A homeless Boston man named Glen James turned in a backpack containing tens of thousands of dollars in cash and traveler's checks. In case you weren't aware, the money was in USD. Boston police chief Ed Davis honored Glen James on Monday, giving him a citation and thanking him for an "extraordinary show of character and honesty." James said in a handwritten statement he gave out at a news conference that he was glad to make sure the bag and its contents were returned to the owner. "Even if I were desperate for money, I would not have kept even a penny," he said.


James found the backpack at the South Bay Mall in the city's Dorchester neighborhood Saturday evening. He flagged down a police officer and handed it over. Inside was $2,400 in US currency, almost $40,000 in traveler's checks, Chinese passports, and other personal papers. The backpack is now back in the possession of its owner, a Chinese student who was visiting another student in Boston.

You want to hear something else that's truly amazing? The INTERNET rallied in support of the generous man and started an online campaign to raise money for him. You won't believe how much money was raised. Make a guess? Okay let me tell you. US$103,000 according to the Consumerist. “After all the stuff you hear on the news, you wonder about people,” the campaign starter says. “If we can get more people to do this we could completely change the world one person at a time.” Do good and good will follow. The homeless man is about to get more money than he returned. This story should definitely be an inspiration and a reminder that there are still good people in the world. I salute Mr. Glen James on his noble act. Anyway, my name is Trinikid and you've just been informed.
