Woman finds amazing surprise in a rental DVD

Renting DVDs may be on the decline, but this story makes us want to start up again.

Twitter user Liz, @lifeasliz__, received a generous surprise when she opened a rented DVD from Redbox.

"My mom was just hoping to relax and enjoy a movie, but instead God blessed her with more," the college student said.

As it turns out, a philanthropist only known as Marcos put $100 inside the Deepwater Horizon DVD that Liz's mother rented. He included a note that said, "Hello! My name is Marcos. Every month I take $100 that I'd normally spend on myself and give it away to a stranger."
