On Saturday, September 14th, a Boston homeless man by the name of Glen James, came across a backpack.

This wasn’t just any ordinary backpack – this one was full of $2,400 in cash and $39,500 in traveler’s checks. Cha-Ching.

But, Glen quickly returned the backpack to the police. This makes one think – “Would I have done the same thing?”

Boston Police Commissioner Ed Davis rewarded Glen with a special plaque for his outstanding character.

A plaque is great, but likely a little bittersweet for Glen James, considering it will always be a reminder that he has nowhere to hang it – but, then again…

A man by the name of Ethan Whittington caught wind of the story, and decided to start a fundraiser for Glen. He set up a campaign on GoFundMe, and tweeted it out to his five twitter followers.

The campaign has since raised over $72,000 for Glen James, who has also since gotten offers for help finding a job, people wanting to donate computers to him, and even offers for free dental care for life.
