After forgetting her wallet in Hope with nearly $1,500 in cash in it, Kirsten Wale and her fiance were relieved to find it not only turned in, but still full of their money, which was for a new puppy.

Thanks to local good Samaritan, couple’s wallet, money returned in time to buy puppy


I’ve been meaning to write for a while now in regards to this, as I want to thank this random person for being amazing.

On March 30, my fiancé and I made the trek all the way from Victoria to Kamloops to pick up our new puppy. Driving through Hope on the way, we stopped at the Chevron there for a quick break.

Twenty minutes away from the meet up spot in Kamloops, I realize my wallet is gone with the $1,100 for the puppy, and about $350 in tips from my work week. I had absentmindedly left it on top of the toilet paper holder in the bathroom of the Chevron.

We called and someone had turned it in, and in no way did I expect to find the wallet returned with all of the money in it still, but imagine my relief and surprise upon picking it up and finding all the money there!

We had just bought our first home, and as a young couple that money gone would have been a bit of a hit.

I just wanted to thank your community for the sort of kindness you don’t think exists in many corners of this world anymore, it meant the world to us. We managed to get the puppy, and her name is Cedar.
