Tyler Opdyke found a money clip in the driveway of a home in California when he was handing out flyers in the neighborhood. What he did with it was captured on the home’s surveillance camera.
His kind gesture is earning him praise after he returned the lost wallet with $1500 inside, but he says he shouldn’t be thanked for doing the right thing.
It turns out Melissa Vang’s husband dropped it outside of their home. Tyler knocked on the family’s door, but Melissa, who was home with her children, was too afraid to open the door.
Tyler simply held the wallet up to the surveillance camera at the front door, tucked it under the doormat and went on with his day.
“It’s sad that I didn’t trust him to open my door when he was just doing a good deed,” Vang says. When she later reviewed the camera footage she saw what Tyler had done. She later shared his good deed on Facebook.
She later opened the door to Tyler when he returned to check on the wallet. The family gave him $150 as way of thanks.
Vang later said of why she posted the video, “I think we all need to be reminded that there are still good people out there.”
