5-year-old finds $7,000 at Goodwill

A 5-year-old shopping with her mom at a Wichita, Kan., Goodwill store discovered an envelope containing $7,000 on the floor of the thrift store, Goodwill said.

Gayle Goetz with Goodwill Industries said Claire Dingler, 5, handed the envelope to her mother, Ginger Johnson, after seeing lots and lots of money inside, The Kansas City (Mo.) Star reported Wednesday.

Goetz said Johnson handed the money to store employees and asked, Wouldn't anybody just turn it in?

Goodwill told the Star the owner of the money was found and the cash returned.
