- A homeless man never minded that he needed monetary help when he stumbled on a $10,800 (N4,437,828) at a busy street corner
- When Elmer returned the money, Roberta Hoskie, the owner was surprised that such a person would do that
- After rewarding him with some money, she did money and gave him a job in her company, an act that turned his life around
A homeless man, Elmer Alvarez, found a cheque of $10,800 (N4,437,828) on the floor at a street corner. Instead of thinking of how to cash, he did the most honest thing.
The man decided to call the number at the back of the cheque. It should be noted that he has been living on the street for years before that incident, Understanding Compassion reports.
He soon found out that the cheque belongs to a real easter broker called Roberta Hoskie. When the woman got the call, she did not even know that she had dropped the cheque.
While expected that the person who found it was a professional like herself, she was surprised to see a homeless man in need of great help.
“I expected to find a guy all nice, clean-shaven and blue suit. I thought, ‘what a good Samaritan’.”
Being one time a homeless single mother, Roberta offered to help him, an act that made the man cry hard as he hugged her.
Roberta said that at a point in her life, she was at the lowest low as she could not afford shelter. She said as a single mother, a kind stranger also helped her become better.
