BRAINERD, Minn. (NBC) – One man’s good deed at a drive-thru drove a days-long community effort to pay it forward in central Minnesota.
Setting in motion a chain of events, to keep that chain going and going with customer after customer paying it forward, paying for the person behind them for two and a half days.
The Dairy Queen’s store’s manager Tina Jensen says this tends to happen once in a while but at most it lasts for 15 or 20 cars and fizzles out. This time however over 900 cars participated, raking in $10,000 in sales.
She says past pay-it-forward efforts usually last 15, maybe 20 cars.
But, this is 2020 after all.
