A mom from the metro Atlanta area accidentally threw away a Disney travel mug filled with $6,500 stashed away inside. Channel 2 WSBTVAtlanta is reporting that Lindsay Preiss reached out to the news station in an attempt to recover a Disney Parks travel mug she donated to the Goodwill.
Preiss’s son had just sold his car and stashed the money in the travel mug with the Mickey Mouse sticker on it and the mom didn’t know when she donated the mug to Goodwill. He stashed it away for safekeeping in the mug because the banks were closed on Sunday, not knowing mom was doing a little early spring cleaning.
Mom and son are both hoping the money will be returned to them by a good samaritan who hears about the story on the news. “(I feel) like the worst mom in the world. I mean I feel terrible,” Preiss said. They contacted the Goodwill store on Highway 138 in Conyers and it was determined the mug was purchased.
“We would be very, very thankful if you brought it back,” Preiss said. “I’m just asking someone to please have it in your heart to do the right thing and give it back.”
Poor mom! The family is offering a monetary award for the returned mug with the money.
