A homeless man in Kansas City, Missouri is facing a windfall of more than $100,000 for his kindness after he returned a diamond engagement ring to its rightful owner, which she had accidentally dropped into his donation cup.

Billy Ray Harris, who is homeless and often sleeps under a bridge, was shocked to find that a diamond ring had been dropped in his collection cup while begging last Friday.

To show their appreciation, Darling and her husband set up an online fundraising page on giveforward.com for Harris.

So far more than 3,800 donations have been made, totaling over $125,000. The money will be given to Harris at the end of a 90-day campaign.

A similar 90-day fundraising campaign for a bullied New York school bus monitor collected $700,000.
