Here's a story that proves that 2020 isn't all bad. It all started at a Dairy Queen with an act of kindness.

 Store Manager Tina Jensen told KARE11-TV that it started at the drive-thru with one man paying for the car behind him spawning a chain of kindness that lasted two and a half days.

Jensen says she told the next lady in line what the man had done.

 "So the lady pulled up and I said just to let you know the gentleman in front of you paid for your order. If you like I can pay it forward and you can pay for the order behind you and we can keep this going. She's like 'really, why would he do that?' I said we just have it every once in a while where someone will take care of the person behind them and today is your lucky day."

That woman then paid for the car behind her...

"Our fans were so excited. They didn't want to break the chain. They wanted to keep that chain going," Jensen says.

The chain of charitable giving ran all of last Thursday, all Friday, and most of last Saturday...

"We ended up at over 900 cars, over 10,000 dollars in sales, and it went for two and a half days,  No matter what hard times anyone is going thru," Jensen says, "just take care of each other, you know, that's what it is … take care of each other."
