It's funny they call doing the right thing "Karma" :)



Homeless Man Who Returned $40,000 Finds Out That Karma Is Just The Greatest


Glen James was "shocked" that one simple good deed could completely change the course of his life, but he’s grateful that it has.

After discovering a bag in a Boston mall last month filled with a passport, $2,400 in cash and nearly $40,000 in traveler’s checks, the homeless man immediately turned the bag in to the police so that it could be returned to its rightful owner, the Boston Herald reported.


James thought that was the end of the story, but it was just the beginning.


Boston police honored James with a special citation and then Ethan Whittington, a complete stranger in Midlothian, Va., was so moved by James’ story that he decided to set up an online fundraising campaign.


That fund has raised more than $150,000 as of press time.


On Thursday, Whittington and James met for the first time and each thanked the other for their selflessness and inspiration, TODAY reported.


In addition to the outpouring of funds, supporters are also working on helping James to get a new home near his sister, an incredible life overhaul he never saw coming.


“This is a total surprise and shock to me that it has gone this far,” he told TODAY.


Karma really is a wonderful thing, isn't it? Find out how you can help support James as he continues to turn his life around here.

WOW!!! Cool story. Thanks for posting a refreshing story.

Honesty does pay.

"It's a known fact that eighty decibels of rushing water is one of the most pleasing sounds known to mankind. On other hand, ten and a half days at sea is enough water for anybody."
