Homeless Manís Honest Deed Rewarded with $16K Donation, and Counting (http://news.yahoo.com/homeless-man-honest-deed-rewarded-16k-donation-counting-172200491.html)

A homeless man in Kansas City, Mo., made national headlines more than a week ago when he returned a valuable platinum and diamond engagement ring accidentally dropped into his cup of change by a woman offering some extra cash. Now, hundreds of donors have contributed more than $16,000 to a page on GiveForward.com to help Billy Ray Harris get his life back on track. The man's rewards don't stop with financial help -- the media story helped him connect with a brother in Lubbock, Texas, he hasn't seen in nearly 30 years.
KCTV first did a story on the unintended donation Feb. 9. Sarah Darling had put her engagement ring in her change purse because it was bothering her finger. A chance encounter with Harris on the street led Darling to give the man her loose change. It was only a day later that she realized her engagement ring was missing. When she came back to Harris on the same street, he still had the ring and gave it back to her.
The New York Daily News reveals when the woman and her husband returned, they gave the homeless man all the cash she had on her -- around $40 to $60. Then Bill Krejci, who is a web designer, was inspired by some media outlets' websites where people asked how they could help. Enter GiveForward.com.

It is amazing how a pebble thrown into the water can cause so many ripples, and good ones too!

From a tiny mustard seed force the LOVE just keep reverberating. Goodness radiating. I love this unconditional love. I heard hes interview, and he says sometimes a few others have lost valuables just reaching in their pocket and dropping, but, he always gives it back when they pass. It's great, eh.
