This week’s story comes from Southwick, Massachusetts, where a woman who unknowlingly tossed away her million dollar winning lottery ticket was able to get her prize thanks to the kindness of others. Lea Rose thought the scratch-off ticket was just another loser, so she tossed it in the trash of the convenience store where she bought it. In a crazy twist of luck, the son of the store owner found the ticket and realized her mistake. Since Lea Rose is a regular customer, he knew who to return the winning ticket to instead of keeping it for himself. Lea Rose was able to claim her one-million dollar prize, and is stunned about the honesty shown by the store. “I mean, who does that?” she said. “they’re great people, I am beyond blessed.”
