No good deed goes unpunished!

  • Print

 The homeless hero who handed a found backpack full of cash and travelers checks worth some $40,000 over to Police will not walk away from his good deed empty handed. In addition to a special citation from the Boston Police Department, Glen James stands to receive upwards of $70,000 thanks to an Internet fundraiser launched by a Virginia man who was touched by the story. Ethan Whittington thought he could raise a few hundred bucks as a thank you to James for his selflessness. But 24 hours later, Whittington's GoFundMe page had raised over $55,000 thanks to the donations of some 2,000 strangers. And the numbers have not stopped climbing since.
