Georgia woman says she accidentally donated mug of cash

By The Associated Press

CONYERS, Ga. (AP) — A Georgia woman gave away much more than intended when she donated a souvenir mug to charity.

Lindsay Preiss told WSB-TV that when she donated the yellow travel mug with a Mickey Mouse sticker on it to a Goodwill store in Conyers, she didn't realize it had $6,500 inside. Now she's hoping whoever scooped up the unexpected treasure will return it.

Preiss' 27-year-old son, Devon Silvey, recently sold his car for cash on a Sunday, when banks were closed. He was in the process of moving and stopped by his parents' house for boxes. He said he didn't want to leave the cash in his car so he stashed it in the mug in a cabinet.

The family is offering a reward for the return of the mug of money.
