Unknown donor gives $6,000 ring to Salvation Army

The Salvation Army operation in Dalton, Georgia, expects to ring up a substantial sum, thanks to an unusual gift from an anonymous couple.

The charity says a woman handed one of its holiday season bell-ringers a diamond wedding ring wrapped in a plastic bag, along with a note reading, "My husband and I are still deeply in love. We think you could make better use of this ring than us. (Signed) All for Jesus."

The ring, appraised at $6,000, is being offered to private bidders at Maryville Jewelers in Dalton, CNN affiliate WXIA reports.

"It tells me that people have a heart even in these trying times," Salvation Army Maj. Henry Hunter told the station. "They're not focused on self."

The sale of the ring will help reduce the charity's $50,000 deficit, Hunter said.

Maryville Jewelers will accept bids for the next three weeks.

    @Sam: People in India are Hindu. They believe in Buda, not God. And they love cows.
