At this time of year, everyone deserves a little boost. It’s Christmas, and there’s no better time to spread some Christmas cheer.

One community in Springfield, MO, was just cheered up by an anonymous Good Samaritan.

One passerby decided to drop a South African gold coin worth $1,000 wrapped in a $100 bill in a Salvation Army kettle on November 28, 2016.

This isn’t the first time this has happened either.

Last December, a 1978 South African Krugerrand was dropped in a kettle anonymously. It was also wrapped in a $100 bill. The Salvation Army tried to track down the donor but they could never find them.

“It seems like every year we’re surprised with what’s put into our kettle,” says Ryan Ray, a Salvation Army resource developer. “We have no hint of who did this, which kind of makes it cool.”

The Salvation Army kettle campaign began all around the country on November 4 and runs through Christmas Eve. Locally, the money raised from the kettles will help over 800 families who requested Christmas assistance this year.

“To the secret Santa who dropped the coin into the kettle, we just want to say thank you,” Ryan says. “We just want to make sure that you know how much we appreciate how much that you trust and believe in us and that this coin will be turned into a real impact and a real life here in the community.”
