"I hope you will accept this money and find forgiveness," he added.

InterAsian Market posted a picture of the note and a message to the robber on Instagram and Twitter:

This is truly inspirational and reminds us that there are plenty of good people in this world. To the anonymous person, we want to tell you all is forgiven and thank for your note. We don't care about the money. We are more inspired and touched by your act. We hope you find peace in life and prosperity.
