On 23 September 2013, Conner Robinson, a 14-year-old freshman at Bellbrook High School in Ohio, lost his wallet at a Bellbrook-Fairborn football game. His wallet contained his ID, which he needed for an upcoming trip to Washington, as well as $18 and a gift card. He said, “I was really bummed, because my mom said I probably shouldn’t have taken it with me. We retraced our steps but didn’t find it. So I assumed it had been taken.” He telephoned his mother, Andy Robinson, to tell her about the loss. Ten minutes later, her doorbell rang. At the door were Branden Lilley, age 15, and Jordan Pumroy, age 16, both students at Fairborn High School. They had found Conner’s wallet and were returning it. Jordan said, “We were both blessed with being raised by amazing parents and the feeling of giving that wallet back, the joy of his parents just made it that much better.” Another Good Samaritan of this good deed is Branden’s mother, Rhonda Lilley, who drove them around for a half an hour until they found Andy Robinson’s house.
