USPS Returns Cash to College Student

In today's edition of "The Good Stuff," hardworking college student Betsy Holmes.

Holmes scrimped and saved $400 in cash for a new laptop. She had it in a plain envelope, no stamp, that she wrote "deposit" on. She also had a stack of mail for the post office and somehow, the envelope with the cash got mixed in with the stack of mail, and went into the mailbox.

The money left the post office and went all the way to the processing center that moved 3 million pieces of mail a day. Surely somebody had to have found the cash and snagged it by then, right? Wrong.

And eagle-eyed mail handler noticed the envelope, noticed the return address of Holmes' employer on the back, and 2 days later, Betsy Holmes had it back. Postage paid, and not a dollar missing.

If you have some #GoodStuff news you'd like to share, leave a comment, post on Facebook or tweet to Chris Cuomo using the hastag #NewDay, and we could feature your story on "New Day."

Turn it Down! For Your Health

A new study done in New York found that loud music is making many of us lose some hearing.

"This is talking about fairly young people between the ages of 18 and 44," says CNN's Chief Medical Correspondent, Dr. Sanjay Gupta. "Those people who aren't using headphones on a regular basis, you have about a 10% rate of hearing loss. But if someone is using headphones on a regular basis, it goes up to about 25% of those people."

That comes out to about 1 in 4 young people who are describing hearing loss as a result of using headphones, and even worse, the numbers are going up.
