“I Added $20 to It So You Know the World is a Great Place. Do Me a Favor and When You Get the Chance, Do Something Nice for Someone Else”

Marlins Deed

On 3 April 2014, Cristhian Reyes, a Miami Marlins fan who attends Miami Senior High School, lost his wallet at a Marlins-Rockies professional baseball game in Miami, Florida. Fortunately, a Good Samaritan found the wallet, and left it at the high school’s front desk with an extra $20 and this note:


“I found this at the game last night and wanted to make sure you got it back.

“I added $20 to it so you know the world is a great place. Do me a favor and when you get the chance, do something nice for someone else.

“Hope you enjoyed the game last night.

“Go Marlins!!”

Miami Senior High School registrar Barbara Piedra said, “This nice gentleman walked in, and I said, ‘May I help you?’ And he said, ‘Somebody lost this wallet. One of your students. I think it’s one of your students from this school, lost this wallet at the game, and I just want to make sure he gets it back.’”

Cristhian Reyes said, “I just want to thank him for giving me back my wallet. Whenever I can, I’ll return that favor that they asked for.”
