SUBJECT: PUT YOUR NAME ON IT
Have you ever lost something and never had it returned? It could be that the person that found it, may not have known who's it was, and where to return it. There's a lot of honest people in the world, but you sometimes need to help them stay that way.
A few years ago a change purse, with several dollars was found, but there was no identification on it, or in it, to get it back to the owner. Since it was found in the parking lot of a business that has no customers, it was likely owned by someone who worked there, but where? A note asking if someone had lost something was posted on the doors coming into the building. With luck the person who dropped the purse saw the sign, called the finder, and described the purse to a tee. Had there been any kind of identification with the purse it would have been a lot easier to get it back to it's rightful owner.
If you have anything that has a possibility of being lost, your name, address, telephone number, or other identification should be placed on it, or in it. Then if it does get lost, all you have to do is hope that an honest person finds it, and gets it returned to you.
