Dr. Joel Schlessinger donates to homeless man who returned backpack with $42KDr. Joel Schlessinger recently donated to an online fundraiser, praising the honesty of a homeless man who returned a backpack that was filled with $42,000.

Glen James, a homeless man from Boston, Mass., found an abandoned bag in front of a department store. The bag contained $2,400 in cash and $39,500 in travelers’ checks. He flagged down police and turned in the bag. The money was returned to its owner.
