LDS Author Has Unexpected, Touching Response After a Thief Steals a "Christmas Jar"

MR says: While the rest of the world has been railing against a thief who was recently caught stealing a donation jar from a public library, LDS author Jason Wright, who inspired the idea for the jar in the first place, had a surprising and charitable response to this thief.

It was an unusual visit at the Tuscarawas County Jail in New Philadelphia, where a best-selling author went to see an inmate accused of stealing.

Jason Wright is the author of the New York Times best-seller "Christmas Jars," which sold more than a million copies and launched a movement. In it, anonymous jars of money are left for those in need. The story became the inspiration this year for the Dover Public Library's own Christmas Jar.
