Homeless man returns woman’s diamond ring, donations start pouring in (Video)

By Daniel S Levine,

A woman from Kansas City, Missouri was so happy that a homeless man returned her diamond ring that she set up an online fund for him. The fund far exceeded her goal, reaching well over $100,000.

Sarah Darling gave some change to Billy Ray Harris and her diamond ring accidentally fell into his cup. Two days later, she went up to Harris to see if he still had the ring. He did, and gave it back to her.

“I actually feel like I'm especially lucky to have this ring now. I loved it before. I loved it so much, but I love it so much more now. I feel like it has such great karma,” Darling told CNN’s Soledad O’Brien.

Darling explained that the ring was very important to her, so when she saw Harris again, she was relieved.

“I asked him ... 'I don't know if you remember me, but I think I gave you something that's very precious to me,' and he says, 'Was it a ring? Yeah, I have it, I kept it for you,'” Darling explained.

According to CBS St. Louis, Darling and her husband, Bill Krejci, then set up a GiveForward fund for Harris. Originally, they set their goal for just $1,000, but it is already up to $154,000.

“My grandfather was a reverend. He raised me from the time I was 6 months old and thank the good Lord, it's a blessing, but I do still have some character,” Harris told KCTV.
