Caught On Camera: Kids Return Wallet with $700
It's not everyday you find people doing the right thing, especially when it involves money.
A couple of kids were out riding their bikes when they found a wallet. They decided to return it to the owner. When they went to the house a video doorbell caught the whole thing on camera.
It turns out the wallet had $700 insides. Remember that next time you hear someone bashing kids today. There's still plenty of good ones out there.
Colorado kids caught on camera returning wallet with $700 cash inside: 'Gives you faith in humanity' WATCH THE VIDEO
While riding their bicycles, a group of Colorado children discovered a wallet with $700 by the road. But instead of keeping the cash, the kids were caught on camera returning it to its rightful owner.
“We found your wallet outside of your car, and we just thought we would give it back to you so … I’m going to put it over here so no one takes any money,” one of the children said when a doorbell camera prompted them to leave a message.
The kids, from Aurora, placed the wallet near the house, out of shot of the camera, and scurried off with their bikes.
The wallet belonged to Nigel Drake, and when his dad saw the doorbell footage, he posted it to social media in an attempt to find and thank the kids. It has since gone viral – raking in more than 2,000 shares and 125,000 views.
“It gives you faith in humanity a little bit that there are good kids out there,” Drake told KUSA-TV. “These kids’ parents are raising them the right way.”
He said his wallet must have fallen out of his pocket after he got off of work and was carrying things inside the house. He told KUSA that he is figuring out what to get the kids to say thank you.
