250 McDonald’s Drive-Thru Customers Pay It Forward

250 McDonald’s Drive-Thru Customers Pay It Forward

The generosity of Florida resident Torie Keene sparked a positive chain reaction

The kindness of one individual prompted others to follow their lead.

Torie Keene of Lakeland, Florida, embraced the spirit of the holiday season with a small act of kindness. What Keene didn’t realize when she paid for the meal of the car behind her in a McDonald’s drive-thru was that her ‘paying it forward’ would continue for hours afterward.

The cashier, Marisabel Figueroa, told ABC news that the pass-it-on chain lasted almost the entire length of her shift, from 9 a.m. At the end of it all, a total of 250 paid it forward. Figueroa says, “I feel very blessed to have been a part of all that.”

Keene reached out to Figueroa on Facebook after seeing the story on the news, and told Figueroa she was, “only trying to brighten someone’s day,” and did not foresee the chain reaction caused by her actions.

According to Eater, this pay-it-forward chain is not the first of its kind, citing a 215-customer chain at a Georgia-based Chick-fil-A in July of this year and a 1,468-customer chain at a Connecticut Starbucks in 2013.


Random act of kindness leads to 250 McDonald’s meals getting paid forward

CHRISTMAS is about giving, and 250 McDonald’s customers have shocked the chain
with their amazing generosity.

When Torie Keene visited her local Drive-thru in Lakeland, Florida this month,
she asked the cashier if she could pay for the next person’s meal.

McDonald’s employee Marisabel Figuero informed the next person in the queue
that they could have their food for free.

The customer was so moved by that they decided to carry through the kind
gesture by paying for the next person’s order.

Cashier Marisabel commented: “I just kept giving everyone the same message,
and they were all so stunned and so happy.”

Remarkably, the chain continued with the next 248 cars that followed suit.

After the 15th act of kindness, cashier Marisabel started keeping a tally of
the vehicles that participated.

She told ABC news: “It kept going and going. After the 15th car I started
tally marking the number of people that were participating on a piece of
paper.”

By the time 250 cars continued the chain of generosity, Marisabel’s six hour
shift was almost over.

After hearing the story on a local radio station, Torie Keene contacted
Marisabel on Facebook and revealed herself as the customer who sparked the
festive kindness.
