This ‘thank you’ notice, photographed recently in New York City, is an expression of gratitude from someone thrilled to have a lost wallet returned.
After reposting the photo on the Good News Network’s Facebook page, it sparked an avalanche of personal stories about kind strangers returning wallets and purses, and at the same time enforcing the faith in humanity’s goodness.
Stories such as these:
“I have lost my wallet twice in my life: once on an airplane and once in a NYC can. Both times it was mailed back to me anonymously with money and everything still inside. Go humans indeed!”
“We returned a wallet that had 300 dollars in it.”
“At Paul Simon’s 1991 Concert in Central Park I lost my wallet. It was returned to me in the mail! I tell EVERYONE this story! Go Humans!”
“My husband once left his wallet on top of the car and drove off. A lovely guy who saw it lying in the middle of the road drove it over to our house to return it with everything inside.”
“Same thing happened to me this week. Left my wallet on the roof of my car. It fell on the road. A nice lady saw it, stopped her car to pick it up, and located me to return it. Go Humans!”
