It may have been a generous donation, but it was an unintended one.
Linda Hoffman of California donated a pile of old clothing to Goodwill without realizing that one shirt had thousands of dollars hidden inside its pocket.
According to Time, the woman’s husband, Bob Huffman, began stashing the money six years ago, hoping to save up enough money to take his wife on a surprise vacation to Italy.
He had accumulated about $8,000, which he placed in an envelope inside the pocket.
When the couple finally realized what happened, and Bob spoke up about the secret stash of money, they rushed back to Goodwill. Inside Edition reports that the couple begged Goodwill employees to track down the shirt, and the staff agreed to give it a shot.
