Good things oftentimes will come back around to those who do good, and this story is a perfect example of that.
According to the Boston Globe, cab driver Raymond “Buzzy” MacCausland picked up a passenger who was moving from a homeless shelter to a nearby hotel. When he left the cab, he accidentally left a backpack behind. But this was no ordinary bag with things you’d expect to find in a backpack. Instead, when MacCausland opened it to look for identification, he found bundles and bundles of cash. $187,000 worth.
Upon realizing what it was, he headed right to the police station, and helped law enforcement return the money to its rightful owner. It turns out, the money was an inheritance, and the passenger was using it to get back on his feet. As a result, MacCausland received a $100 tip, but Royal Caribbean heard about the good deed and decided he deserved more.
We’ve recently published a story on the cruise line’s “Ticket to Adventure” sweepstakes currently going on, which you can read here. Royal Caribbean decided to surprise MacCausland with his very own ticket to adventure – a free seven-night Caribbean vacation aboard either Oasis or Allure of the Seas, if he decides to accept. Additionally, the cruise line will provide airfare for two, and VIP onboard amenities including free internet.
As mentioned before, what goes around comes around. This cab driver is sure reaping the rewards of his kind act, and we couldn’t be more happy for him.
