A Dairy Queen in Brainerd, Minnesota was the site of a 900-car-long stretch of kindness,
On December 3, store manager Tina Jensen was thrilled to learn that a customer wanted to pay for the car behind them. When Jensen let the next car know, she asked if they would like to do the same, and when they agreed, the chain of kindness began...
One customer was particularly overjoyed at the act.
"One lady, she was so excited, she threw us a 20 dollar bill almost in tears. 'Are you serious? This is really going on?' I said, yep, you are about 125 cars into it. She said, 'For real, can you believe this?'" Jensen said.
It seems as though people were in the holiday spirit, attempting to give back during an unprecedented time in history.
In the end, over 900 cars ended up in the chain that went on for nearly 3 days. Almost $10,000 in sales came from selfless customers who decided it was more prudent to give to others than receive a free meal.
