A “pay it forward” chain made a better day for hundreds people in Florida


It stopped when customer number 379 declined to participate .People were happy to do this kindness act. Some of them expressed their thoughts. “It makes your day better, I think,” 17-year-old Lexie Kane told, as an example. Another pay-it-forward chain began Thursday and ended several hours later. The location estimates about 725 people have participated over the past two days. It’s previously  pay-it-forward record,  was 141. Such things happen sometimes. Last year, a Starbucks in Connecticut continued the chain for several days around Christmas, with nearly 1,500 drive-thru customers footing the bill for the drivers behind them.

The “pay it forward”, describing the beneficiary of a good deed repaying it to others instead of to the original benefactor, is an old concept. It was rediscovered and described by Benjamin Franklin, in a letter to Benjamin Webb dated April 25, 1784, but the phrase with these words was  used by Lily Hardy Hammond in her 1916 book “In the Garden of Delight.”
