I can’t imagine the desperate times that must be on a homeless person. I always feel so bad when I see someone just sitting or sleeping on the side of the road. And I’ve seen quite a bit of that, I’m from Detroit.
This homeless guy, Elmer Alvarez, was in a similar situation. He was walking down the street in New Haven, CT when he found something on the ground: a blank check for $10,000. What’s incredible here, and what makes him out #BullManMoment, is that he did everything he could to contact the person who owned the check. And he did! He called Roberta Hoskie, who didn’t even realize she had lost the check until that phone call.
Elmer said that doing the right thing and giving the check back, and also seeing Roberta’s smiling face, was worth way more than $10,000! And keep in mind, he’s a homeless man.
Roberta was so thankful, she gave him a piece of that check to help Elmer get started on an education and to also rent a small apartment! It’s truly touching.
