A homeless Arizona man is seeing the impact of doing good after finding a backpack filled with $3300 and turning it into the authorities.
Dave Tally, who is recovering from drug and alcohol addictions, returned the backpack to the Tempe Community Action Agency, where officials returned it to Bryan Belanger, a student at Arizona State University, who had lost the backpack on his way to buy a used vehicle, The New York Times said.
According to USA Today, over 50 people have sent donations to Tally for his selflessness. He has also been offered jobs to help him get back on his feet, The New York Times said.
"It wasn't my money. I didn't earn it," Tally says. "I'm the one that has to lay down every day and deal with myself. If I'd done anything different than what I did, I don't know if I could handle that."
