Boy Leaves Money and a Note After Stealing Wind Chime

After a Young Boy Stole Her Wind Chime, This Woman Received a Sad Note About Loss

If someone stole something from your home, you'd likely be angry and totally pissed off, but not Chrissy Reitz. Chrissy took to Facebook to share a note she found on her door along with a $5 bill from a young boy who explained that his sister stole her wind chime. But she didn't care about the wind chime — Chrissy posted the letter because she wants to find this sweet boy, give him his money back, and give his siblings another identical wind chime.

"I am sorry that we stole your wind chime," the note reads. "Our mom died and liked butterflies so my sister took it to put by our window. I am sorry this is [the] only money I have. Please do not be mad at us. Jake."

Chrissy explained on Facebook that she lost her mother at just 5 years old and knows how hard it can be. The Washington mom-of-five is asking Jake to return to her home so she can give him his money back and let him know that it is OK he took it and that she's not mad. She's on a mission to find the young boy and his sister and has asked her Facebook network for any tips.
