Losing a wallet is one of those careless acts most of us have fallen prey to, at some point or the other in our lives. While most of us tend to move on after mourning over the lost necessities, there are a few lucky ones who get them back, be it with the help of the police or the generosity of the person who finds it.
And then there is Hunter Shamatt, who not only got back his wallet but with some added happiness that was tagged along!
Hunter was on his way to attend his sister’s wedding on a Las Vegas-bound flight when he realized that he has misplaced his wallet, sometime during the journey. Hunter’s family reached out to the Frontier flight to enquire if someone had handed it over to them.
Unfortunately, there was no sign of the missing wallet.
But wait. The story was far from over. Just a week after Hunter’s sister’s wedding, he received a package in his mail. And guess what? There was his wallet!
Surprisingly, the wallet was not the only thing that was inside the package. It also had a handwritten note for Hunter which turned out to be a bonus! The piece of paper read,
“Hunter, Found this on a Frontier flight from Omaha to Denver — row 12, seat F wedged between the seat and wall. Thought you might want it back. All the best,
P.S. I rounded your cash up to an even $100- so you could celebrate getting your wallet back. HAVE FUN!!!“
Moved by the touching gesture, Hunter’s mom, mom Jeannie Shamatt, decided to write a post on Facebook giving a detailed description of the incident. She also urged everyone to share the post as she would like to meet and greet the person behind the act of kindness, personally.
Now, thanks to the astonishing power of social media, the post finally reached the man behind the note.
The man was identified as Todd brown and it was one of his coworker’s who made sure Jeannie Shamatt’s post reaches his colleague. An elated Jeanie took to Facebook again to thank Brown and his family for restoring her faith in humanity.
“I try to teach my children to do the right things in life, help people when you can regardless of the out come. This story is more about restoring faith in people than anything. Everything in the wallet we could of replaced. We hear a lot of bad news but not enough good news. I personally want to thank Todd Brown and his wife for restoring faith that there are amazing people out there.“
