When you lose your wallet somewhere, you can pretty much kiss that wallet, and anything that was in it, goodbye. But 20-year-old Hunter Shamatt had a Good Samaritan watching out for him. Hunter was on his way to his sister’s wedding in Las Vegas recently and realized far too late that he had lost his wallet on his flight from Omaha. That wallet had his ID, $60 in cash, a debit card and a signed paycheck.
But just a few days later, after Hunter had arrived back home, he received a package in the mail. Inside it were his wallet and everything he had lost along with it, as well as a little more money.
The package also included a letter with only initials. Through the return address on the package, and with the help of a news station, Hunter and his family were able to track down the kind man who sent him back his wallet.
His mother, Jeannie Shamatt, posted this on her Facebook page: “I personally want to thank Todd Brown and his wife for restoring faith that there are amazing people out there, the world is not as grim as it’s being made out to be.”
Todd later said he thought about turning the wallet over to the flight crew but then he decided to handle things himself to make sure it got back to Hunter.
Says Todd: “I saw he was just a kid, 20 years old, he had a paycheck in there, so I figured, ‘Well, he’s doing his best to make ends meet,’ but I was 20 once, and that’s a lot of money for a kid. I imagined what it would be like to get your wallet back, so I added a little bit so he could celebrate.”
And that, my friends, is truly a Good Samaritan.
