Dr. Joel Schlessinger donates to homeless man who returned backpack with $42KPosted by in Community
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.
Ethan Whittington started an online fundraiser to award James and his efforts. People who have donated to the fundraiser are touched by Glen James’s honesty, including Dr. Joel Schlessinger.
“This is such a feel-good story,” said Dr. Joel Schlessinger. “What incredible honesty!”
The money will be given to James after the fundraiser ends. It has been discussed that James will be assisted by a financial planner, but ultimately that choice is up to James.
