Wellesley, MA -

This is an example of how one man's trash is another man's treasure, quite literally in this case A 53-year-old Brazilian immigrant, who wants to remain anonymous, recently discovered $20,000 dollars in cash tucked inside the pages of a book he found at a recycling center in Massachusetts. He's an avid book collector and says they help him learn the English language. He said he couldn't sleep knowing that this money could belong to someone who had children or really needed it. As of yet no one has come forward to claim the money, but the man says that he can now sleep in peace knowing that he did the right thing.
