Sometimes moms just want to get rid of stuff they think nobody is using and sometimes they're dead wrong in doing so. One mother in Atlanta is now frantically searching for a travel mug that she donated to Goodwill because unbeknownst to her... it had $6,500 of her son’s money inside .
Lindsay Preiss recently donated her son, Devon Silvey’s , childhood souvenir. She later learned that he had sold his car for cash and stashed the $6,500 inside. The mug is yellow with a Mickey Mouse sticker. Silvey said that he sold his car last Sunday when banks were closed. He is in the process of moving and didn’t want to leave the cash in his car. So he stashed it in the mug and put the mug in a cabinet. That's when mom sprung into action and donated the mug.
They immediately contacted the Goodwill, where workers searched surveillance footage. The mug had been priced and thrown into a bin to be put onto the shelves. They assume from there, someone purchased the mug. They're offering a monetary reward to the person who returns the mug with the cash inside. Good luck.
