Taylor Sloan, a 22 year old graduate in California, was astonished at an amazing letter she received in the mail. Sloan had previously lost her wallet and after a few days had given up hope of ever finding it, but that mystery package in the mail returned her lost wallet with all contents inside. The heartwarming part of it all was the fact that the package was sent by a 10 year old boy that happened to find the wallet.
The package and accompanying letter were sent by 10 year old Nasim Lawrence. The 10 year old boy found the wallet and picked it up, immediately after finding it he knew he needed to do the right thing and try to get it back to its owner. Nasim wrote that he had found the wallet, wanted to return it to Sloan, and was happy to report that he had not stolen anything from it while it was in his possession. The letter, written by Nasim, went on to say that Sloan “looked like a nice person” and he thought she deserved to get back her property, so he did everything he could to make that happen. Nasim and his mother drove to the post office and mailed it back, but that wasn’t enough for 10 year old Nasim as he insisted that they pay extra so he could track the package in the mail.
Sloan says she received the letter through her mother, since the address on her driver’s license was actually a previous address. But immediately after her mother received the package she sent pictures to Sloan. They were both absolutely speechless at how kind this little boy was and they were excited to show off the letter on Facebook and other social media. That decision really paid off, as it has now become a huge viral hit around the internet. Ms. Sloan say she’s incredibly grateful for Nasim’s kindness and in order to pay him back she’ll be mailing him a thank you letter as well as a large bag of candy.
This is just another shining example of a young child knowing to do the right thing. Nasim knew immediately that he needed to get the wallet back to its owner, and that’s exactly what he did. It really is heartwarming to see just how much this little boy cared about doing the right thing.
