Anonymous Santas have been dropping gold in Salvation Army kettles across the country, delighting the bell ringers who come out every year before Christmas to take in spare change for the poor.
“Whoever does this is very clever about putting the money in the kettle because we never know what he’s doing,” says Sue Hennings, spokeswoman for the Waterloo, Iowa, chapter of the Salvation Army. “It truly makes it Christmas.”"
