A beautiful thing has been happening in my hometown of Bloomingon, Illinois. It's an area of about 200,000 and people have been paying it forward in the name of Michael Collins, who was killed by a drunk driver on March
To honor Michael's love for life and giving spirit, a friend of his has started a pay it forward movement called #MCSTRONG. There is a Facebook page dedicated to this movement where people can share random acts of kindness they have performed or received in Michael's memory. This has been happening for several days now and has spread to surrounding areas and is slowly hitting different parts of the country.
I've been following these acts of kindness and I'm amazed at how easily and gernerously people are reaching out to total strangers by paying for tabs at restaurants, leaving gift cards on windshields, and even sponsoring children to play baseball.
Let's bring this movement to Utah! Click the picture below to see the Facebook page.
