In December 2013, Kalen Stimpson, a senior at Cedar Hill High School in Cedar Hill, Texas, lost her pink wallet. It contained a paycheck debit card with over $300 on it and such sentimental items as a $2 bill, a gift about which Ms. Stimpson said, “I got it on my 14th birthday and I haven’t spent it. I just keep it.” When she realized that she had lost her wallet, she worried about Christmas: “I was like, ‘Oh! I can’t get anybody Christmas gifts. I can’t because all my money was in there. I don’t know how I’m going to get my parents, or friends or anybody anything.’ I was just really upset about it.” Kewpie Steward, a senior at Ferris High School in Ferris, Texas, found the wallet. She said, “I was just going with my boyfriend to get his hair cut and I dropped him off and parked the car. It [the wallet] was just lying right by my door.” Ms. Stewart spent $6 of her own money to return the wallet, mailing it — and a note — to an address she found inside the wallet. She said, “I looked at her birthday and said, ‘Hey, she’s a month younger than me! Man, I know how she’s feeling.” Ms. Stimpson said, “I wish I could just grab her right now and hug her because she really went out of her way.” Ms. Stimpson’s mother wrote about the good deed on Facebook.
