An unusual gift from a Boston-area widow warmed the hearts of Salvation Army staff in that city. The woman, who remained anonymous, placed a diamond ring and her wedding band in a red kettle in the Boston area, along with a note. The note said she hoped the rings would be sold and the money used to buy toys for needy children. She gave the rings in honor of her husband who always had a giving spirit, especially at Christmas. In the note, the woman wrote, “To honor his memory, I donate this ring. I’m hoping there’s someone out there who made lots of money this year and will buy the ring for 10 times its worth.” She added, “After all, there’s no price on love or the sentimental value of this ring. But money will help the kids.”—Jim L. Wilson and Jim Sandell
