It has been almost five years since these college students turned down over $40,000 in order to do the right thing.

Reese Werkhoven and his two friends from the State University of New York first found the wads of cash in May 2014.

They had just been preparing to cozy up onto their newly-purchased secondhand couch when they reached into the couch cushions and started finding envelopes stuffed with cash – and lots of them.

Though the trio of students were initially elated by their discovery, they eventually found an envelope with a woman’s name written across the front.

Despite how some people might have been content to keep the cash for themselves, the friends new what they had to do.
