‘Tis the season of giving — and we have a couple of heartwarming examples of that to pass along .
First it was a nice surprise for some paramedics in downtown Kingston today.
They returned to their ambulance to find a couple of Tim Horton’s gift cards tucked into the driver’s side window.
Meanwhile a 10 year-old Kingston girl is being praised by Kingston police for her honesty and generosity.
Last spring a girl named Ailsa turned about $900 cash into police after she found it in the east end of the city.
The police policy for found items turned in, is if the rightful owner can’t be found in 90 days, or don’t come forward themselves to inquire and claim the item, it can be given back to the finder.
In this case because of the large sum of money involved, Kingston Police tried for six months to find the rightful owner.
Those efforts were unsuccessful and so, as is policy, the money was given to the little girl.
Instead of keeping the money Ailsa decided to donate it, giving half to a local youth shelter and the other half to an animal rescue facility.
