Did you hear the story of the cab driver who found a lost backpack in the back of his car filled with over $187,000 in cold hard cash?
As reported by the Boston Globe, Raymond “Buzzy” MacCausland, a cab driver in Boston, returned the cash to the rightful owner through the police and received a reward of $100 for his good deed.
So what does this have to do with travel?
Once Royal Caribbean caught wind of this honest effort from MacCausland, they kicked his reward up a notch by providing him a “Ticket to Adventure” and gave him a free seven-night Caribbean cruise:
The unexpected honesty and integrity MacCausland demonstrated is what made Royal Caribbean want to reward his good deed. If he accepts the offer, the cab driver and his guest will have the adventure of a lifetime onboard their choice of Oasis of the Seas or Allure of the Seas, ships that each feature seven neighborhoods and 16 decks packed with activity, from a zip line and surf simulators to more than 20 dynamic options for dining. MacCausland and his guest will have the chance to visit destinations in Mexico, Jamaica, The Bahamas, St. Thomas and more.
In addition to the cruise, Royal Caribbean will provide round-trip airfare for two, plus VIP onboard amenities including complimentary VOOM, the fastest internet at sea. It’s a Royal reward for a noble act of kindness.

Definitely a solid gesture from Royal Caribbean (and good PR to boot).
So next time you find a bag full of cash, remember karma is always the best reward!
