These days the news only shows the worst of humanity day in and day out. It is enough to make even the most optimistic person lose faith in humanity.
During all of this doom and gloom, we want to shine a light on a story that will not only make you smile but also restore your faith in humanity again!
Daisy Owen was like any other 20-year-old enjoying her night out in town! During the night’s activities, she misplaced her purse. Daisy was absolutely devastated when she realized what had happened. Her purse held her cash, her wallet, her IDs, her keys, and as well as her expensive new iPhone.
Daisy assumed that her bag would never return to her. She was sure someone had probably taken it for themselves and decided to give up home almost immediately. However, this was not to be the case…
A homeless man had found her bag outside of a pub and immediately kept it with him. He rummaged inside the bag for clues as to who owned it and came across Daisy’s ID. He silently vowed to himself to reunite the bag with its owner.
So he went about town asking people whether they knew Daisy Owen. He did not tell people he had the bag because he did not want them to wrongly claim it as theirs.
It had been over a day of him walking around looking for Daisy. With no leads, he finally decided to take a chance and walk to her home address to return the bag to her.
He was about to start his journey to her home when he came upon one of Daisy’s friends. The friend told him they knew Daisy Owens, and then sent her a message on Facebook letting her know that her purse had been found!
Daisy was massively relieved at getting the news. But she was also in a lot of shock. She thought of homeless Paul, who lived in a hostel and could barely afford food had been committed to finding her and returning her bag to her.
He could have easily sold her belongings and pocketed the money she had had in her purse for himself to enjoy.
“If I was in that position then I would have sold all of the stuff to improve my life – but Paul didn’t,” Daisy said. “My faith has genuinely been restored in humanity – it’s amazing. He was still going hungry and on the streets even though he had my £10 note in the bag.”
Daisy was moved by Paul’s honesty and dedication to returning the bag to its owner. She decided that she would help Paul get his life back in order. She set up a fundraiser to help Paul get some permanent housing, warm clothes, and some food.
The GoFundMe fundraiser she set up raised over $5,000 and was undoubtedly a big help to Paul to help him get his life in order!
