DANVILLE, Va. (WSET) -- Shawn Barksdale lost his wallet months ago.
He had no idea where he left it until one day he got a Facebook message from Lynisha Graham, an employee at Golden Corral in Danville.
"Chalked it up as a loss. About 2-3 weeks later by the name of Lynisha contacted me on messenger and said that she had found my wallet," said Barksdale, who lives in South Boston.
Barksdale said the wallet must have fallen out while he sat down to eat.
He said there were hundreds of dollars in there, but nothing was missing.
"Everything was in the wallet. Money, cards, social security card. Everything was in the wallet," Barksdale said.
He was truly inspired by this act of kindness.
He decided to surprise Graham at the restaurant on Saturday with a custom t-shirt he made, a certificate and also gave her other goodies for being a good samaritan.
Graham said she searched him out on Facebook because it was the right thing to do.
"It was just the good thing to do because I'm a parent. I mean we've all lost something and it's hard to get that stuff back now," Graham said.
Graham's kindness gave Barksdale the idea to create an organization that highlights people's good deeds.
He calls it "Acts of Kindness."
"We're going to find good people, trustworthy people that we can take and put them in these place to find good samaritans and present different gifts as it grows and as we get investors," Barksdale said.
Graham thinks it is a great idea.
"We always hear about so much bad things going on. To just hear the good, it may help anybody," Graham said.
