It could have been so easy—find a bag containing $4,000 and keep it for yourself.

But not the Smith ladies—Tiffany, Tara and Margie.

They did what was right—turn the money to its rightful owner, which was Kmart. There was no hesitation and no question. They did what their parents instilled in them.

It saved Kmart and the employee responsible for that money bag a heap.

What did Kmart do for the Smiths—give them a $25 gift card, which was a little more than six-one-thousandths of the total turned in.

Goes to show you, doing what’s right isn’t easy.
