Man Saves Donated Money from Blowing Away

The Peter and Paul Homeless Shelter will have money for meals, thanks to one Missouri man's honesty.

Jane Corbett was on her way to deliver a financial donation to the shelter. But as she got in her car and drove away, she forgot one thing -- the envelope full of the money on top of her car.

"When she merged into the traffic it all blew up in the air and money just [was] coming down everywhere," onlooker Ray Leuthauser recalled.

"I honked trying to get her to stop," he said. "I just pulled over and just started grabbing money."

Leuthauser was able to gather only a fraction of the money that blew away. He then tracked down Corbett.

"The phone rang and it was like, 'Are you kidding me?'" she recalled.

"We're all union people and work for a living and she shouldn't be out that money," Leuhauser said.

More than half of the money was never recovered.

But Leuthauser's co-workers donated more than $500 to help make up the difference.
