One message from a synagogue located near where he found the card caught his eye.
“They messaged me and they said, ‘We think we’ve found Ben’ and so they called me and they described where it was, what the envelope looked like, what the card looked like,” Israel said.

UPDATE! We found Ben!! His family is part of a local congregation and he wishes to remain anonymous (Grandma wouldn’t be too happy with him). He’s got his card & gift back. Twitter did its thing. Internet, I appreciate you.
