These Students Found Treasure In An Old Couch; What They Did Next Was Amazing!

Way back in 2014, three young roommates bought an old couch from a thrift store for $20. After a couple of weeks, they thought that the couch felt especially lumpy; so they decided to flip it over the cushions to find out why it felt so odd. It was then that they made an amazing discovery about their new-old couch.

To their surprise, the students found a plastic bag containing envelopes of cash- a total of $40,000! Along with the cash, was a deposit slip with the name of a 91-year-old woman on it. The roommates learned that the couch (and the cash) belonged to this woman, so they decided to track her down and do the right thing! It’s wonderful to find treasure, even more so when it makes its way back to the original owner! Watch the whole story below.
