An Illinois man who kept his life savings in a suit because he didn’t trust banks accidentally donated it to Goodwill. Now that has to be the most expensive cheap suit of all time.

The 80-year-old man lost nearly $13,000 in cash and Goodwill authorities say they believe the man’s story and are doing what they can to find the money.

To make matters worse, the man also has an elderly wife who is suffering from Stage 4 cancer.

Store officials have gone through their donations and haven’t been able to find the money. Some donations were transferred to another Goodwill store but searches at both have come up empty.

It is not known if someone bought the donated suit. The unidentified man’s daughter is offering a $1,000 reward for the money’s return. We wish him luck, and hope that the next time he donates something, he checks his pockets thoroughly.
