MIDLAND COUNTY, MI (WNEM) -

A little boy's battle with cancer and his untimely death are sparking a movement. People all over are performing random acts of kindness in Jayden Lamb's name.

The little boy lost his battle with cancer on Nov. 27, just weeks before his ninth birthday. Jayden's story continues to inspire people who never even had a chance to meet the little boy.

His family posted a story on their Facebook page about a call they received from the Salvation Army. The family learned someone dropped a gold diamond ring in the bell ringer's bucket. Wrapped around the ring was a note that said "paying it forward for Jayden Lamb."

Jayden's family posted this message online: "My family is deeply touched that you would do this in Jayden's name. Just so you know we are just as [grateful] for people that just do a good deed for someone. You guys really are helping my family heal with your random acts of kindness in Jayden's name. Thank you so much."

A Facebook page dedicated to Jayden is filled with stories about paying it forward. One woman wrote about how she arrived to pay for her Christmas toys that were on layaway only to find out someone already paid for them. Another person posted a receipt for dinner on the Facebook page, showing a stranger paid for their meal.
