A busboy in Colorado who was struggling to pay his medical bills came upon a lost $3,000 on the floor of his job recently. It would have been quite easy to pocket the found money, and pay off his expenses.
Instead, Johnny Duckworth said he understands what it’s like to work for a living, so he returned the money to it’s rightful owner.
Now, Duckworth’s honesty is paying big dividends from people who have been touched by his kindness, hard work, and attitude.

A struggling Colorado busboy who returned $3,000 in cash that he found on the floor is getting rewarded with a big tip.
As of Monday, people impressed with Johnny Duckworth’s honesty have raised more than $3,800 through gofundme.com.
He found the cash Tuesday at Randy’s Southside Diner in Grand Junction, and handed it over to his boss, Randy Emmons.
The man whose money had been lost said of Duckworth, “Makes me feel a lot better … Knowing there are a lot of honest people out here.”
Randy set up the gofundme page in the hopes of raising $3,000 for the honest busboy from Colorado.
As of this writing, it has far surpassed those expectations.
‘Thumper’ is an inspiration this holiday season, for such a small act of honesty.
Thanks for reminding us what Christmas time is all about.
