An American homeless man, Billy Ray Harris, is being generously rewarded after he returned a diamond engagement ring that accidentally fell into his cup.
The ring belonged to US woman, Sarah Darling, who mistakenly dropped the ring when giving Mr. Harris some spare change.
After realising the ring was missing, she returned to the Country Club Plaza in Kanzas City, Missouri, to find Mr. Harris who gave the ring back to her.
'I'm just so grateful,' Sarah Darling told Reuters..
'I could tell exactly how much it meant to you, the moment I held it up like that,' Mr. Harris told her.
Despite the attention of both national and international media, Mr. Harris is modest about his actions.
'What I'm actually feeling like, is what has the world come to when a person returns something that don't belong to them, and all this happens,' he said.
To show her gratitude, Ms. Darling started an online campaign to raise money for the homeless Mr. Harris on www.giveforward.com.
Over $150,000 (approx. $AU146,660) has been raised on the website as of Tuesday, February 26, but there are still 79 days left in the 90-day fundraiser so Mr. Harris could stand to walk away with much more.
However, Mr. Harris has said that his 'biggest reward' was getting in contact with his sister, which happened as a result of the media coverage of his deed.
Robin, Mr. Harris' sister, was able to get in contact with her brother by giving her phone number to a KCTV reporter.
