MOUNT PLEASANT, Wis. (AP) - Ring a bell, get a ring?

The Journal Times of Racine (https://bit.ly/1HHnw7V) reports Salvation Army bell ringers in Mount Pleasant found a diamond ring inside their red kettle during a Tuesday donation drive. After a few days of waiting for an owner to come forward, the Racine Salvation Army is considering the ring a generous donation.

Diamond rings have been popping up in red kettles across the country.

Local corps officer Major Ken Nicolai says they’ve received jewelry before, but nothing as valuable as the ring. The Salvation Army is still waiting to get the ring appraised.

Donations - and unusual contributions like the diamond ring - have surged since the Salvation Army announced it was behind on its fundraising goal.
