In the news: $60,000 found in Garbage dump site

November 28,2008
Cebu City

A 16-year-old boy who makes ends meet by searching for treasures in other people's trash found a sack containing $60,000 USD! And the good thing about it is, after confirming that the bills were not fake, the boy knew how to share some of it to his fellow scavengers and even distributed rice to them.

$60,000 USD is around 3 Million pesos! It will truly be a MERRY Christmas for that lucky boy. (^^;)

Let's hope that it stays that way. An owner of a money-changing business has surfaced and is claiming ownership of the sack. Nobody can really be sure who owns it and for the boy to find it in the garbage means that it was probably discarded by the owners already.
