Pay It Forward Kindness Delivered At Edmond Dunkin Donuts

Posted: Updated:
EDMOND, Oklahoma -

The food is not the only sweet stuff at the Edmond Dunkin Donuts store. Goodwill and generosity are on the menu.

"It made my entire day," employee Amanda Huffman said. "I was so excited."

Amanda has her regular customers at the popular location near Broadway and 33rd Street. It was one of Amanda's regulars who handed her a $100 bill with instructions to pay for as many cars in the drive-thru as possible.

"We've had pay it forward before, but this was like a big pay it forward," Amanda explained.

When customers learned what was happening, they started adding to the cause.

"I said, ‘I'll just pay for the one behind me,'" said customer Rachel Barnard. "[Amanda] was so excited … she said, ‘gosh, you're the 40th one we've had today in a row.'"

Dunkin Donuts employees saw the generosity with car after car! Eventually, the original $100 turned into $300. Roughly 90 customers had their orders paid for by complete strangers.

The sweetest part about the entire gesture was that it all started with Amanda. On a day off work, Amanda went through the Dunkin Donuts drive-thru as a customer. That's when she noticed one of her regulars in a car behind her. Amanda paid for his order. The next day, the man showed up with $100.

"The community pulled together, and we all helped each other out one day," said Amanda. "It showed me that people still care."

Owner Misha Goli wants the generosity to continue. Goli tells News 9 anyone who pays it forward on February 27, 2014 at any Dunkin Donuts location in the Oklahoma City metro will receive a free medium hot or iced coffee.
