Ladies all over America have been dropping generous donations into the iconic Salvation Army red kettle collection pots. Last week an anonymous woman dropped a diamond engagement ring worth £1250 into a pot in Miami, Florida. The week previous, another diamond engagement ring was dropped in to a pot in North Carolina, following a diamond ring worth another £1250 deposited at a kettle in the supermarket Walmart, in Kansas earlier this month.
Spare a Thought This Christmas
The note which accompanied last week’s diamond ring simply read ‘They need more than I. Do good!’ signed ‘A friend’. The generous donations are a great symbol of Christmas spirit, a time when the Salvation Army really needs a boost in support to provide those in need with warm meals this Christmas. It certainly has made me think about how lucky I am, and what I can do to help this Christmas. Even if I can’t deposit a diamond ring, I know every penny which goes to that charity will be greatly appreciated.
