Pay It Forward

Benevolence Story


I really had no idea what to do with the money and I had never done anything like this before. I actually thought I was gonna be giving it back to the church on Sunday. But I prayed to God that I would receive a clear sign of who I suppose to give it to and I did. I have a department manager at my job whom just started about a month ago. I don't know her well but I know from being around her that she is very caring and appreciative of every little thing I do or my coworkers do. She is a very hard worker at work and continues that with her 5 kids and husband at home. I thought I would give her the money to take her and her family out to a nice dinner but I soon found out that it takes $45 dollars just to take her family to MCDONALDS! So I thought, "ok, I will just give it to her for her husband and her to go out to dinner to her favorite restaurant, Olive Garden". But when I thought about it, I remembered I had $50 that a family member sent me as a Christmas present. It costs $75 to take her and her husband and her five kids to dinner at Olive Garden. So I took my Christmas money and the $30 and bought her 3 gift cards to Olive Garden to take her whole family out to dinner. She flipped. She was speechless. She didn't wanna accept it at first. But I just told her to "pay it forward". :)
