Woman Reunites Wedding Ring Found In Instant Pot Box With Owner
January 02, 2019
Shiloah Avery was pretty excited when she opened her new Instant Pot box on Christmas morning, but she was really surprised when she found a wedding ring inside. The Port Orchard, Washington woman wasn’t being proposed to, the ring was someone else’s, and after trying to contact the manufacturer, she took to social media to try to return it to the woman it belonged to.
After Instant Pot issued Avery a support ticket for the ring she discovered in the box, she posted about it on a local Facebook page and asked the community for help tracking down the ring’s owner. Later Christmas evening, JoAnn Johnson contacted her and verified that it was her lost ring. After proving it was hers by sketching the ring for Avery, Johnson was thrilled to get it back, just days before her 20th wedding anniversary.
It turns out, Johnson had been shopping for an Instant Pot at their local Walmart and it slipped off her hand. She searched for it, but didn’t find it and even posted to a local Facebook page in hopes of getting it back, but says she had totally given up hope of ever finding it until she saw Avery’s post. Now the women have become buddies and Johnson calls Avery her “Christmas angel.”
Thrifty Social Worker Leaves $11M To Kids’ Charities
January 02, 2019
During his time on Earth, Alan Naiman was known for being frugal. He liked saving money and was happy wearing jeans from Costco so he could put his pennies in the bank. The 63-year-old social worker never married or had kids, but children were important to him and when he passed away from cancer, he left the money he saved over the years to children’s charities.
But what surprised even Naiman’s friends, was how much the thrifty man managed to save over the years. He donated more than $11-million to Seattle area charities devoted to helping kids, including the Pediatric Interim Care Center and Make-A-Wish. Naiman’s friend, Shashi Karan, says saving money was more of a game than a sacrifice to his pal and that he was excited to think about how much good his money would do when the time came.
"'My gift is going to be bigger than their annual budget. It's going to blow them away,'" Karan remembers Naiman saying. "And it did."

January 02, 2019
They’ve been divorced for two decades, Mary Zeigler is still there for her ex-husband Bill Henrichs. The couple first met at 14, got married at 18 and then divorced after 24 years, but stayed friends over the years, even after Bill remarried. And when he needed a kidney recently, his ex-wife was happy to donate hers to him.
Bill needed a kidney transplant and was in line, but after 30 donors were tested and none were a good match, Mary knew her blood type was O, making her a universal donor, so she could help. After tests confirmed she was a good match, they had the surgery and the exes are recovering well.
The former couple know their story is unusual, but they hope it will inspire other exes to be kind and civil to each other. Mary says, “If this story changes one person’s actions or attitude towards their ex, it’ll all be worth it.”
