WESTON, Fla. (WSVN) — A child that found hundreds of dollars in a bag returned it to its rightful owner.

Ryan Gandara is only 10 years old. However, he is already in business for himself, selling phone covers. Gandara was doing just that when he came across $400 in a plastic bag.

Instead of keeping the cash for himself, he finished working and went to find the rightful owner. “He made the choice himself,” said Gandara’s father, Joel Gandara. “He said, ‘Let’s try to find the person. Let’s give it back to them.'”

Gandara and his father eventually tracked down 16-year-old Andres Wulff. “It’s crazy that someone returns $400 nowadays that you find cash in the street, so I’m grateful,” Wulff said.

The money was for a fundraiser for Cypress Bay High School’s football team.

“We always tell him, good things happen to those who do good things,” said Ryan’s mother, Jessica Gandara.

Wulff has now made a new friend and received football gear from the team, along with free game tickets for the year. His good deed has also made him a social media star.

“Hopefully, there’s other kids out there saying if that happens to me, I’d do the same thing,” Jessica said.
