Florida 10-year-old finds bag of money in street, returns it to HS football team

By

A high school football player lost a bag of money earned at a team fundraiser only to have it returned hours later by a very honest 10-year-old.

As reported by Miami Fox affiliate WSVN, 10-year-old Ryan Gandara found a plastic bag with $400 in the middle of the street. Instead of keeping the cash to help supplement Gandara’s fledgling business selling phone covers, he and his father set out to find the rightful owner.

Their sleuthing quickly led them to Andres Wulff, a 16-year-old football player for Cypress Bay. Wulff was allegedly safeguarding the cash from a recent Cypress Bay football fundraiser, but lost the bag of money in transit. He was thrilled to get it back — “It’s crazy that someone returns $400 nowadays that you find cash in the street, so I’m grateful,” Wulff told WSVN — and Gandara’s mother said that her son was only acting in a way she would expect others to act to him.

“We always tell him, good things happen to those who do good things,” Gandara’s mother, Jessica Gandara, told WSVN. “Hopefully there’s other kids out there saying if that happens to me, I’d do the same thing.”
