We at least get a passing grade at honesty, trust, & fairness — Atlantic Credit Unions put us to the test recently, by placing 12 wallets throughout public places in the Atlantic provinces.
Would they be found & turned in, or would they be “lost forever?”
Each wallet was filled with about $100 cash, bus tickets, receipts, debit card, and an “if found, please return to” card inside.
Within hours, phone calls were pouring in of random strangers finding these lost wallets.
Nine out of the twelve wallets were found & turned in — with its contents completely in tact. That’s a 75% passing grade!
Those who turned the wallets in were rewarded with keeping the money — then, a donation on behalf of the credit unions were made to a charity of the good samaritan’s choice!
This just goes to show that Atlantic Canadians rule. <3
