Random Act of Kindness: Student returns money to owner

Posted on December 11, 2013

Dilworth woman ‘never really had second thoughts about it,’ returns $2,800 in cash to owner

By: Wendy Reuer, INFORUM

MOORHEAD – When 19-year-old Erica Clark found an envelope full of crisp $100 bills in a McDonald’s parking lot here, she couldn’t help but wonder if someone’s Christmas had just been ruined.

“All I could think about was what if someone was going Christmas shopping and all their money was gone,” she said.
Clark had stopped for lunch at the Eighth Street McDonald’s and was returning to her car on Tuesday afternoon when she found the Wells Fargo envelope stuffed with $2,800.

Without hesitation, she took steps to find a way to get the money back to its rightful owner.

“I never really had any second thoughts about it,” she said. “I really didn’t know what to do, but I knew I wanted to turn it in right away. I just didn’t know where.” Read the rest of this entry →

facebook.com/msumoorhead 

Q: What is one of your favorite hobbies?
A: Oh, well that’s an easy one. I love to golf – if you can call it that – and every summer, we have the Author Open, or the Poet Pro-Am, I guess, with Thom Thammaro and Mark Vinz and Terry Rude, all of the English department, and then me. Although they can kick my butt in poetry, I can hold my own on the course. It’s great fun, and I think it’s really surreal to know that I go home, and I have their books on my shelves. I read them, truly love them and admire what they do as poets. They’re just great, great people. To sit in the golf cart just talking – it’s just the best. I play guitar a lot, so that’s my other one. I’m big into music. My buddy and I play a lot of music together. It’s been awhile since we’ve done live shows, but we still get together and think we’re rock stars. Read the rest of this entry →
