Woman Mistakenly Donates Husband’s Jacket With Thousands Of Dollars Stashed In It To Charity

Linda Hoffman of Placentia, California dropped off a bag of old clothes to Goodwill without knowing that there was $8,000 in the pocket of one of her husband’s old shirts.

Not only that, but the money was a secret vacation stash that her husband had been saving for six years and was planning to use on a surprise trip to Italy with her when he retired.

 Bob Hoffman had been secretly saving the cash for six years, planning to surprise his wife with a vacation to Italy when he retired.
Two days later he realised the shirt and his money were missing. He then fessed up to his secret plan and the two of them rushed over to the Goodwill donation centre.
Employees scrambled to track down the shirt, but had no luck.
 “We looked at it as if it was gone, that we hoped it would go to somebody to help that family out,” Linda Hoffman said. It wasn’t until the next day that Goodwill employee Caitlin Mulvihill came across a bulky pile of dress-up shirts. As she sifted through it, she found the shirt with Bob’s stash. “I describe it as a miracle,” Hoffman said. “I would say that it was honest people and what touched our hearts the most is how honest they were.”
