Homeless does not mean dishonest

 Evelyn Topper probably dropped her wallet when she and her granddaughter, Mikayla Gounard, were leaving a coffee shop in San Rafael, California, recently. She didn't realize it was missing until she got home. With her credit, debit and medical cards gone, she was upset. But she wasn't upset long. The next day Sean Curry found her wallet in a dumpster behind the coffee shop. Except for cash, it was completely intact. Even though he's been homeless for five years, he made arrangements to return Topper's wallet.

Her granddaughter had already planned a socially distant "drive-by" party for her upcoming 12th birthday. She originally asked for contributions to be given to charity in her name, but after learning more about Sean Curry, she asked for donations for him. By the end of the day, she'd raised several hundred dollars. When she and her mom went to Curry the next day to give him the money, he admitted feeling truly humbled by the heartwarming gesture.
