There are advantages to living in a completely digitally connected world: an act of kindness which would have otherwise remained in the dark can be shared and celebrated by millions of people across the world.
That’s precisely what happened when a mother of two walked into a Dallas jewellery shop last week.
She went into the shop with the intention of selling a ring that her mother had gifted to her.
However when a man called Noah, who was working in the store at the time, saw how upset she was to have to part with the sentimental piece of jewellery, he asked her how much money she needed and gave it to her... and then gave her the ring back too.
Noah, who wishes to keep his face and his surname anonymous, is a Syrian refugee who fled his homeland two years ago.
