Rewarding Kindness

Last week I accidentally dropped my wallet while passing through a "sketchy" part of town. Inside my wallet was roughly $2k cash (every dollar I have struggled to save on my own), all my IDs, and exclusive contact info for top industry professionals. Within minutes I had a phone call from a sweet family of 4 who spoke less English than I do Spanish. They gave me the address of their small home on a dirt lot where I could come pick up my wallet. 

Just to think what keeping that money could have provided for them, and that they seemed to not even consider it for a moment. People are amazing. I will never give up hope in humanity. Ever.

My friends and I are hoping to raise $2,000 to return to this family as a gesture of "rewarding kindness". The remainder of the funds will go to their local school district to promote arts education. Education has always been incredibly important to me and I am a firm supporter of arts education as a tool for a better future. Our total goal is $5,000.

All donors will receive a gift as our thanks and reminder of your generosity. $10-eCard Update $25-Leather wrist wrap crafted by a skilled artisan local to this family's community $50-Name on a plaque (anonymous optional) that will be given to the school district honoring our donation to the arts program. Thank you for your generous support for honesty, the art of service, and rewarding kindness.
