Taylor Sloan, a 22-year-old woman from California, lost her ID, debit card, and nearly $40 in cash that she thinks slipped out of her back pocket at a Motorcross event in Oakland. With no hopes of getting her wallet back, she canceled her card and got a new license from her DMW. To her surprise, her mother called her up after a few days and said that her wallet had come back in the mail and the wallet was accompanied by a letter.
The letter was written by a 10-year-old boy named Nasim Lawrence. The letter read – “Ms. Sloan, I know how it feels to lose something and I wanted to make sure you got your wallet back. Hopefully, I made you smile, and you are happy to have your money back. I am glad I found it instead of some bad person who would steal it from you. You look like a nice person who does nice things for people, so I wanted to do something nice for you.
Plus, it’s the honest thing to do.” Nasim said that he found her wallet on the floor at the Super Motocross event and was so worried that he asked his mother to pay extra money so that they could track the package. Sloan, a recent Sonoma State University graduate was so moved by the little boy’s actions shared a picture of the letter with her friend DanoWano, who is a local radio DJ who shared the story on the radio station’s social media page.
Nasim’s act of kindness spread like wildfire, and he was acknowledged by his school principal, who told him ‘You’re Famous.” Sloan told TODAY. That’s when Nasim’s mother reached out to Sloan through Facebook, and they have been exchanging texts ever since. Sloan also plans to send Nasim a letter back along with candies and a $20 reward. Sloan hopes that Nasim writes back to her.
