Lessing said in an interview that she thought the money was fake as she had never seen such an amount in her entire life.

She immediately reported and with some documentation found in the same donation, they were able to locate the owner.

The mother of one's good deed was rewarded with the owner of the cash asking Goodwill to give her N349,00 which she said lifted a huge burden off her shoulders.

Lessing said she wants her daughter to follow in her footsteps and know that kindness, honesty and integrity can lead one to great places.

The donations centre was impressed by Lessing's integrity which is a core value they strive to live out daily.

The cash is also the largest that any Goodwill in Oklahoma has found in its 85-year history.
