In today's edition of the "Good Stuff" we discover actor Paul Walker once bought a wedding ring for a young U.S. military veteran shopping with his fiance in California. CNN's Chris Cuomo reports.
This purchase happened a decade ago when Walker noticed a young U.S. soldier shopping with his fiancee for a wedding ring in a Santa Barbara jewelry store.
"The groom was just back from duty in Iraq, and he was going to be deployed again soon and wanted to buy a wedding ring, but he said he just could not afford it," saleswoman Irene King told CNN. "I don't think the soldier realized how expensive those rings are, about $10,000."
"Walker called the manager over and said, 'Put that girl's ring on my tab,'" she said. "Walker left all his billing info, and it was a done deal. The couple was stunned. She was thrilled and could not believe someone did this."
King called it "the most generous thing I have ever seen."
Stories of Walker's incredible generosity have become a major aspect to coverage of the actor's death.
In today's edition of the "Good Stuff," Canadian Lotto officials track down a woman to give her the massive prize she never claimed. CNN's Chris Cuomo reports.
Kathryn Jones purchased the winning ticket last year and lost the paper. But Canadian officials found her!
Mike Hamel, with the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corp., said "We figured out the time, date and location of the purchase. We obtained store security video which clearly shows the identified winner purchasing the winning ticket."
Jones almost didn't open the door for the committee when they came to tell her she won.
"We almost didn't want to let them into the house because we weren't sure who they were. "
We bet she's glad she opened that door.
In today's edition of the "Good Stuff," Connecticut police provide for a man who's robbed of his turkey, CNN's Chris Cuomo reports.
Jimmy Mulligan was walking to a friend's house with his Thanksgiving turkey when he was held up. Mulligan called 911 saying "I was just robbed at gunpoint...They took my turkey. A bag of stuffing."
The dispatcher admits she thought it might have been a prank at first– but after the police quickly confirmed that it wasn't, she organized a money collection from her co-workers and bought two Boston Market dinners for the victims.
Mulligan says after the patrol car pulled up with the meals, "I was really thankful for that."
