Finally a news station that has the right idea!
We hear enough doom and gloom being broadcasted and though it is very important to know what is happening in our world, we should also be praising those that are sprinkling our planet with glimpses of light.
WQAD News 8 is a broadcasting station based in Illinois and they partnered with Ascentra Credit Union to bring a very uplifting series to their news station called, “Pay It Forward”.
The news team shares the stories of people that have spread kindness selflessly and surprises these wonderful humans with $300.
The surprise visits are caught on camera to share with the rest of humanity that there are still things worth smiling for.
Here are some of the heartfelt stories (if you’re a sap like me have your tissues ready):
The news station takes nominees from the community to showcase in their series, so if you are in the area and would like to pay it forward to someone you can do so here.
Everyday it seems we need more and more things to uplift us so why not be the catalyst to get things started. As you can see from the videos, it is not only the big things that can touch and revive a soul.
Many thanks to WQAD for setting a prime example of sharing good news!
What was your favorite Pay It Forward story and how will you spread the cheer today?
