More Than 900 Cars Paid It Forward At A Dairy Queen In Minnesota
The chain reaction of kindness lasted two and a half days.
We could all use a little kindness in 2020, and that's exactly what happened at the Brainerd Dairy Queen in Minnesota last week.
According to the Store Manager Tina Jensen, it all started last Thursday when one man paid for the car behind him, sparking a chain reaction that lasted over two days.
The person in the next car did the same, then the next one, and the next one, and that continued for over 900 cars.
No matter what hard times anyone is going through, just take care of each other.
Jensenthat the employees couldn't believe what was happening — "Our kitchen crew was like, 'Are we really still going?' I said, 'Yep, we're still going.'"
At closing time on Thursday, someone donated to keep the chain going once the drive-thru opened on Friday.
The kindness continued throughout Friday and lasted through most of Saturday.
"We ended up at over 900 cars, over 10,000 dollars in sales, and it went for two and a half days," said Jensen.
If 2020 has taught us anything, it's that people take care of each other and their communities in hard times.
