My Gratitude Towards Kelli


This is purely a testament to the kindness of strangers. A couple of years ago, when the government did the stimulus plan and "awarded" individuals with $600, I didn't get mine. After a few attempts to contact the IRS, I gave up and never gave it another thought. But when I went back to my old apartment yesterday to get some mail, I noticed this letter from Kelli in El Cerrito, CA with a note saying the following:

"This was sent to me by mistake.
I thought it would get to you faster if I sent it myself
rather than wait for the IRS to figure it out. - Kelli"

Attached was the seal envelope from the IRS with my check. I'm going to snail mail this Kelli and thank her for her consideration and for me getting another bonus check during tax season. Some days, I just can't help but be proud to be a human being.
