Why Power of WE? I wish to inspire you inspire others

When Salvation army organizers sifted through donations from Midland, Michigan they found something more than the typical handfuls of change and dollar bills: An engagement ring and a handwritten note.

The ring was a Marquise-cut diamond in a gold setting, worth about $2,000. The note attached simply read: “Paying it Forward Jayden Style. God Bless.”

While a Salvation Army representative told Yahoo! Shine that they routinely find gold coins, jewelry, and other valuables in their red kettles during the holidays—a volunteer in Washington state found a white gold diamond ring just last week —this expensive donation was different. It was in honor of Jayden Lamb, who died at MidMichigan Medical Center on November 27 after a two-and-a-half-year bbattle with cancer. He was 8 years old, a third grader at Pine River Elementary School. He would have been 9 on Wednesday, Dec. 12. And all over the country, people are committing random acts of kindness in his memory.

“We were shocked and amazed that someone would do this,” Jayden’s father and stepmother, Tom and Nicole Lamb, told Yahoo! Shine in a joint statement. “We know that this ring, at one point, meant everything to someone. The fact that they would pay it forward with the ring is so amazing.”
