A homeless man found $900 in a wallet in a trash bin but returned it to the owner.

Kim B., who works as a janitor in the city’s government buildings, threw away the wallet wrapped up in her lunch and never thought she’d see the money again. She prayed to God to help her recover the $900 she’d been saving for a trip back to her native Thailand.

(And God sent her a homeless man?)

He found the wad of cash and credit cards among the garbage and returned it to a worker in a nearby building. Similarly, the man “insists on paying for his food at a nearly relief kitchen,” reports the AP.

The man’s integrity was rewarded with $100. (Kim believes no one else would have returned the money — I wouldn’t be too sure of this, now that I better understand homeless people.)
