Sarah Darling (right) accidentally dropped her engagement ring in Billy Ray Harris’ cup when she gave the then-homeless man change in February.

Kansas City's honest beggar is moving on up after returning the engagement ring a woman accidentally left in his cup.

Billy Ray Harris was able to buy house and car after donors rewarded his act with more than $190,000 in online gifts.

"When I think of the past, I think, 'Thank God it's over,'" he told the "Today" show. "I mean, I feel human now."..."


Cool story. In my experience, the main problem for most "homeless" people is not the lack of a home.
