Attendance at "Pay if Forward" auction was well over 1,200 people

LEWISTON, ID - "Pay it Forward" are three simple words that carry great meaning for the Baldwin family.

"Be able to help other families that have some sort of a child going through an illness or any sort of an injury," said Staci Baldwin.

The fourth bi-annual auction was held this past weekend for the "Pay it Forward Foundation," a foundation that not only provides financial support to families in need but also emotional.

"I think it's really fun and it's a great experience for everyone," said Hannah Conand.

"This is awesome!" said Wayne Brood. "There's gonna be 1,200 people in the building Saturday night all raising money for a good cause."

The Foundation was set up in remembrance of Jackson Baldwin a giving young boy whose life was taken much to early from cancer in
2006.

"Kind-hearted, and an old soul," said Stacie. "He was so mature for his age I sometimes have a hard time realizing he was only ten years old when he passed away."

All the proceeds go to help soften the financial burden that comes from having a sick or injured child.

"My Mom and Dad were crying a lot so it helped my Mom and Dad," said Esai Moses.

Abraham Lincoln puts it best, "In the end its not the years in your life that matters but the life in those years" and Jackson Baldwin lived a very fulfilling life.
