PLANO - Ashley Donaldson’s story touched so many News 8 viewers and inspired them to act.

99.5 the Wolf listeners heard her story and because of her honesty and unwavering position, fans reached into their pockets.

Thursday morning in front of her home she was presented with a check for $3,000.

Donaldson had no idea she was getting the check and responded with obvious glee.

"Is this happening to me?" asked Donaldson.

News 8 introduced you to Donaldson on Tuesday.

She is the teenager who found $2,000 cash near a Dallas shopping center. Donaldson turned it in, but when it went unclaimed, the city decided to keep it.

That rubbed a lot of people the wrong way.
