(February 8, 2016) – A woman who lost her wallet last month never thought she’d see it again, but thanks to an honest little boy, it’s back in her possession!
Taylor Sloan, of Santa Rosa, California misplaced her wallet on January 30 while attending a motocross event in Oakland. It contained about $40, as well as her driver’s license and debit card.
A 10-year-old boy found Sloan’s wallet at the event. He knew Sloan was probably upset about losing it, so he mailed it back to her with this letter:
Dear Ms. Sloan,
My name is Nasim Lawrence and I am 10 years old. I found your wallet on the ground at the Super Motocross event in Oakland. I know how it feels to lose something and I wanted to make sure you got your wallet back. Hopefully, I have made you smile and you are happy to have your money and ID back. I am glad I found it instead of some bad person who would steal from you. You look like a very nice person who does nice things for people so I wanted to do something nice for you. Plus it’s the honest thing to do.
Sloan was so touched by the sweet gesture that she sent the letter to local radio station Froggy 92.9. The station posted the sweet note on their Facebook page, and it quickly went viral.
Nasim’s mother saw the Facebook post and wrote, “Thank you for the kind words about my son. He truly is a loving kid. His father and I try to instill integrity and honesty in all of our children. It feels good to know his natural response was to return what was lost.”
