A homeless man's decision to return a woman's engagement ring after she accidentally dropped it in his cup is about to pay big dividends.

Billy Ray Harris, who frequently panhandles on Kansas City's Country Club Plaza, discovered the ring after Sarah Darling dumped spare change from her coin purse into his cup earlier this month. Earlier that day, she had taken off her ring and put it with the coins.

Television station KCTV reports that after realizing what she'd done, the Missouri woman returned to Harris and asked if he had the ring. He said yes and gave it back to her.

Now, the woman's fiance has set up a website seeking donations for Harris. On Monday, people from around the world had donated more than $145,000.
