Keep on Truckin' Team Jayden Style

While I was out meeting clients today, I stopped by a drive-thru to pick up a sandwich for my wife.  When I arrived at the window the young man handed me a note and said, "It was paid for by the lady ahead of you."  She was paying it forward "Jayden Style." 

      

When you've got a minute, drop by the "Keep on Truckin' Team Jayden" Facebook page.  It's an interesting story, and it's a movement that started in the heart of a very sick little boy who lost his battle with cancer, but his vision carries on.  Can we ask for anything greater in life?

This is great, Mike.  There are also a lot of folks out there who are doing random nice things in honor of the Newtown children and teachers.  You never know when kindness wil strike!

It was pretty cool, Erica. 

That's good to hear, Pat.  I hope it becomes a tidal wave across the country.

Mike,

Last year, At a restaurant,my husband and I and two granddaughters were ready for the bill, the wait person told us, another couple had paid our bill.  We were so surprized and touched by their kindness. I have been trying to give others that feeling as well.

I've done this a few times but not this holiday season.  Time to get it in gear to give someone a holiday surprise.

Morning Mike in these days people are usually only worrying about themselves.  It is nice to see kindness but I wished it would continue throughout the year

Very, very cool.  Thanks for sharing.  Our office adopted a family this holiday season that was recommended to us, and the family picked up their gifts last week.  Over the weekend, the little boy (6 years old) mentioned that the Stuff the Bus Holiday Gift Offering was taking place at their school on Monday, and could he and his sister both unwrap one of the gifts and give it to kids who "don't have as much as we do".  He unwrapped dinosaurs (his FAVORITE) and she Barbies...and they donated their gifts the next school day.  Hardly a dry eye in our office as the story was shared yesterday.  Generosity breeds generosity...paying it forward.  :)
