Homeless Man Who Returned $40K Receives $70K in Donations [VIDEO]

He’s a Good Samaritan. And he’s homeless. He’s Glen James of Boston and last weekend he found a backpack containing more than $40,000. Needless to say, he could’ve used it. But he turned it in.

And now he’s being rewarded for his honesty. An Alabama man named Ethan Whittington read Glen’s story and was moved to set up an account for him on a website for crowd-funding.

Thinking he’d raise maybe three or four hundred dollars for Glen on the newly-developed GoFundMe.com, Ethan’s generous gesture has, to date, yielded more than $70,000 in donations.

The relative ease with which those monies came in has prompted Ethan to set a more ambitious goal of $250,000.

Talk about paying it forward.
