    Background: CITIZENS OF BRAZIL'S SECOND LARGEST CITY -- SAO PAULO -- ARE SUPPORTING BEYOND EXPECTATIONS A CAMPAIGN FOR DONATIONS OF GOLD, JEWELRY AND MONEY TO HELP THE BRAZILIAN GOVERNMENT MEET AN EXPECTED BILLION DOLLAR BUDGETARY DEFICIT.

    FOR MORE THAN A WEEK, PEOPLE FROM ALL OVER THE CITY HAVE BEEN POURING INTO THE OFFICES OF ONE OF THE CITY'S LEADING NEWSPAPERS TO DROP THEIR DONATIONS INTO GUARDED VAULTS.

    THE VAULT FOR JEWELRY IS MOUNTED ON A SCALE AND AS EACH DONATION IS DEPOSITED IN A SLOT, THE READING ON THE SCALE RISES SLIGHTLY. BY SUNDAY RESIDENTS OF SAO PAULO HAD CONTRIBUTED MORE THAN 300 KILOS OF GOLD, (ABOUT 700 POUNDS). CASH DONATIONS AMOUNTED TO ALMOST A QUARTERS OF A MILLION DOLLARS.

    THE MOST COMMON ITEM CONTRIBUTED HAS BEEN WEDDING RINGS. SOME 300,000 OF THEM HAVE BEEN PUT IN THE VAULT SO FAR. THE NEWSPAPER OFFICE HAS COUNTERS WITH A FULL SUPPLY IN ALL SIZES OF ALUMINUM WEDDING BANDS TO TAKE THE PLACE OF THE DONATED GOLD RINGS.

    INSCRIBED ON THE INSIDE OF EACH OF THE ALUMINUM RINGS IS THE LEGEND: "I GAVE GOLD FOR THE GOOD OF BRAZIL."
    THE CAMPAIGN IS TO BE CARRIED TO THE BEST OF BRAZIL ON 1 JUNE.
