Mom Rents A Movie To Relax, But When She Opens DVD Case She Finds A Strangers Note About Money

By  | 

After an exhausting week of work, household duties, and family activities, most of us are ready to relax when the weekend rolls around.

That’s normally when we reach for a great movie, a bowl of popcorn, and maybe even a glass of wine.

While many people have stopped renting movies and prefer to just watch television shows and movies on online streaming services, the problem with those is that they don’t always have the newest options and although you can rent movies online through platforms like Amazon and iTunes, many people don’t have televisions that support those platforms.

That is why services like Redbox still exist it’s a fast way to get a movie while you’re out running errands. Redbox machines are usually located in convenient locations, plus they always offer the newest movies.


One mom recently decided to stop by a Redbox to pick up a movie on her way home.


When she got home and opened the DVD case, however, she noticed that there was something else inside it not just the DVD.


It was a note, along with $100 in cash. She was shocked she never expected to find something like this in a random DVD case.


The note said, “Hello! My name is Marcos. Every month I take $100.00 that I’d normally spend on myself and give it away to a stranger. This month I decided to change it up and put it in a Redbox DVD. You are the first giveaway of 2017! I just ask that you put the money to good use. If you don’t need it, give it away. If you need it, keep it. Have a great day! Marcos.”


After reading this note, I’m thinking about taking a page out of Marcos’s book giving money to strangers is an amazing way to show your generosity.


If we were all a little more like Marcos, the world would be a better place. PleaseSHAREthis story with people you think would appreciate it!
