Below is an amazing story that shows that there are still many good people in the world. Bobby Puryear went to the bank about two years ago to get some cash. He was completely startled to see bank notes totaling $500 in the ATM machine when he arrived.
Bobby rushed into the bank, thinking that someone must have forgotten to take the money out of the bank notes dispenser, and handed it over to the owner, but no one claimed it. Bobby attempted to hand over the money to the bank employees, but they refused. So, with no other option, he embarked on a search for the true owner of the $500.
Bobby then attempted to persuade the bank’s management to provide him with the name of the person who had most recently used the ATM machine.
The manager agreed to do so and promised to inform Bobby as soon as they learned more.
Bobby received a phone call from the bank the next day, notifying him that they had located the owner of the money. The victim was a 92-year-old woman called Edith, according to reports. Surveillance footage revealed that Edith appeared to have forgotten to take the money before leaving the bank.
Edith couldn’t contain her delight and relief when she learned that Bobby was holding the money and was trying to locate the owner in order to repay the money.
She gave Bobby $20, which was all of her funds from the previous month, as a token of her gratitude.
Bobby, understandably, refused to accept Edith’s offer of a prize. When the woman said that she lived alone and that $500 was barely enough to cover her monthly expenditures, he was overcome with sorrow. He then contacted his bank and requested that another $500 be sent from his account to Edith’s.
He did so because he wanted to assist the elderly lady and relieve her of her troubles in whatever manner he could.
Edith would have more than enough money to cover her expenses as a result of this.
It didn’t take long for word of Bobby’s generosity to reach the rest of the town, including his coworkers. They decided to individually contribute a little bit of money, resulting in a total of roughly $100 to give to Edith. That wasn’t all; the bank had publicized Bobby and Edith’s tale, and the bank’s employees were so affected that they chose to contribute money to Edith’s cause as well. The bank employees rounded up $500 and presented it to Edith.
On Facebook, this precious act of generosity has received over 200,00 shares. Many internet users have been moved by this story to exercise kindness and care for others more in their daily lives.
