Damn! Just when I was getting comfortable in losing all faith in humanity, someone has to go and do a good deed. Not only that...the good deed is
returned with anonymous people wanting to help as well.
One of these days I'll get it straight I guess.
But in all seriousness, hats off to all involved in making a fantastic gift even more so for this man. If any of those people are reading this...Thank
you from me to you.
Kansas City, Mo., homeless man who returned diamond and platinum engagement ring accidentally dropped into his beggar’s cup stands to receive at
least $14,000 in ongoing fundraiser by the couple who recovered the ring The public was so moved by Billy Ray Harris’ honesty and selflessness that
many online were looking for ways to help him. Sarah Darling and her husband, Bill Krejci, who gave him all the cash they had with them when they
recovered the ring, wanted to do more and started an online fund for him.
“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 KCTV5 last week. Floored by his honesty, Sarah Darling and her husband, Bill Krejci, dug into their wallets the day
they recovered the ring and gave Harris all the money they had on them as a reward.
And this shows that not all hope is lost.
“The idea was maybe to come up with a couple hundred dollars, something nice for him,” Krejci said. “But now we’re talking about an
amount that could really make a difference.” Nate St. Pierre, director of communications for GiveForward, said that his staff alerted him to the
flurry of activity on Krejci’s page over the weekend. “A couple of days ago we noticed it was really starting to gain traction,” St. Pierre
told The News. “He (Krejci) put the goal at $1,000, and had no idea it would get so big.”
Peace to all!
