    Elderly man loses life savings in donated suit

    Poor guy, trying to do a good deed, had sewn his life savings of $13,000 into the lining of one of his suits (he didn't trust banks), and then donated the suit to Goodwill. His wife has Stage 4 cancer, so he is hoping to get the money back to help with her medical expenses.

    So sad. I hope this gentleman's money is returned to him soon. Please, please, please let someone do the right thing!

    I heard on the news last night that people from all over are donating $$$ to make up for what he lost. I love a happy ending.

    I can't find the story now, but I read earlier today that he is declining all donations and offering a $1,000 reward to anyone who returns his money. He's embarrassed and can't remember exactly when he made the clothing donation.

    I will continue praying this story has a happy ending. And bless those who are offering their help.
