    Reuters reports that an anonymous couple whose $130,000 bid won singer Sheryl Crow's 1959 Mercedes convertible in an auction for tornado-damaged schools in Joplin, Missouri, has one- upped itself. The couple also donated $130,000 more to the cause! How generous of them!

    The couple bought the white Mercedes 190SL convertible at an Aug. 22 auction in California along with one of Crow's Gibson guitars, two concert tickets and a photo opportunity with the star. Their winning bid exceeded the car's estimated value of $50,000 to $80,000, and the couple decided to match it with a donation, according to the Community Foundation of Southwest Missouri, which is raising money for Joplin schools!

    "I am so touched by the donor making this very generous contribution on my behalf to Joplin schools," Crow, a former teacher and a Missouri native, said in a statement released by the foundation.

    What have you done to donate or to help tornado-ravaged areas?
