Stranger With Big Heart Puts Diamond Ring In Salvation Army Kettle

Dec 18 (Reuters) - Talk about ringing in the holidays.

An anonymous donor dropped a diamond and sapphire ring worth
$2,000 into a Salvation Army kettle in suburban Miami on Friday,
the charity said on its Facebook page.

The ring, tucked inside a $50 bill, was wrapped in a note
that read: "They need more than I. Do good! A Friend."

Earlier this month, someone dropped a 3/4-carat diamond in
one of the charity's donation kettles outside a store in a
suburb of Kansas City. That ring also appraised for $2,000.

Gold bars, gold coins and wads of cash have also appeared in
the kettles over the years, the Salvation Army says.
