    Anonymous donor drops gold coin in Salvation Army kettle

    Salvation Army officials found a golden surprise in one of their collection kettles this week.

    Captain Kevin Strickland was counting the money in the kettle Thursday when he found a gold coin that someone had wrapped in a $100 bill.

    The coin is worth at least 300 dollars.

    The anonymous donor had written "Everything Helps" on the 100 dollar bill.
    Just when I think that I have seen the most depraved things a human can do to another human, somebody posts a new story...........

    Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?

    I just read something yesterday that someone near where I live dropped an engagement ring in a Salvation Army kettle with a note attached that said, "This ring didn't bring me any luck, hopefully it brings you some." They had it appraised and it's worth about $1000. That's a pretty nice donation.
