If there's any justice in the universe, Glen James just earned himself heaps of good karma!
The homeless Bostonian man recently stumbled across a backpack in a strip-mall which contained $2,400 in cash, nearly $40k in traveler's checks, and a Chinese passport!! Wowzers!!
Did he do what many others might do — look around to see if he was on camera before taking the bag and running?
No, not even close!
Glen could've used the money more than most, but he turned the backpack into nearby authorities because he thought it was the right thing to do!!
The Boston PD returned the money to its rightful owner — a nearby employee — and then honored the
good great samaritan for his efforts and convictions.
See the heartwarming vid…AFTER THE JUMP!!!
Glen also revealed:
"Even if I were desperate for money, I would not have kept even a … penny of the money I found. I am extremely religious — God has always very well looked after me. I would like to take this opportunity to sincerely thank everyone — every pedestrian stranger — who has given me spare change. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!"
Wow! What a humble, inspirational man!!
We realize the award he won won't put a roof over his head or food in his belly, though; we sincerely hope Glen's good deed affords open new doors which might allow him to turn his life around!
Kudos, good sir!!
