The fund for Glen James, set up for the homeless man who returned a backpack with $42,000 inside, has collected more than double that in donations. The Virginia man who started the campaign calls it “amazing” and a “statement to everyone in America.”
As of this morning, more than 4,000 people have given money to support a better, healthier life for Mr. James, who found the backpack Saturday but immediately turned it over to police.
The fundraising campaign, at Gofundme.com, has tallied $100,353 so far.
