Just days after Brenden Mombourquette lost his wallet after the Oct. 9 Leafs game, a Good Samaritan returned it to him via FedEx
Brenden Mombourquette had already left Toronto and was well on his way back to his Bolton home when he realized his wallet was missing.
He’d been in Toronto Oct. 9 to do some shopping and see the Leafs play, so over and above his driver’s license, health card, bank cards and all the other important documents — his wallet was stuffed with cash.
Bad, bad feeling: money gone, identity gone, potential misuse of your documents — anyone who’s gone through it can identify.
And then his wallet came back.
Mombourquette, 23, is the lucky guy whose wallet was found and sent to him by a Good Samaritan.
The wallet, all the cash and everything else intact, was lying on his front porch in a courier envelope. Someone found it and sent it FedEx to his front door.
“I was at the Leafs’ game on Oct. 9. My boss got me tickets. We just had a great time down there,” said Mombourquette.
“We left the game, went to the parking garage to get the car and we were just out of Toronto when I realized I didn’t have my wallet. And I had no idea where I could have lost it.”
Mombourquette, who works in landscape construction, went home and ordered new bank cards right away. New ID was next on the to-do list, but before he started the process, his wallet was returned.
“The next Saturday, I noticed a package on the step. The wallet was in there, with a note, and everything was in it.”
His wallet was found in the parking garage by someone else who’d watched the Maple Leafs play that night, and they sent it to him with a little note of explanation.
“Please take care,” it closes.
Mombourquette, who hails from Sydney, N.S., could not believe his good fortune.
And he is very grateful to the kind woman who sent him back his wallet without hesitation.
“It’s amazing. I really thought my wallet was gone for good.”
Does he have a message for his Good Samaritan?
“I’d like to say thank you. She has restored my faith in humanity.”
