Two wedding rings were dropped into the red kettle, shocking the bell ringer.
She donated the rings in honor of her late husband so that children in need will get more gifts this Christmas.
“Sometimes someone will tell a bell ringer, in this case the donor wanted to remain anonymous, but gave this really remarkable, personal, sacrificial gift with a specific need in mind to help children this Christmas,” says Drew Forester of the Massachusetts Salvation Army.
In a note with the rings, the woman wrote, “In all seasons, my husband was a giver,” and by her special donation, others will be benefiting from her gift.
