MINNESOTA — Customers at a Dairy Queen in Minnesota filled their karma buckets, as well as their bellies over the weekend.

There was a spontaneous chain of drive-thru customers paying for the people behind them.

It started with just one person -- and grew to 900!

Over the course of a few days, Good Samaritans spent about $10,000 dollars on each other.

"It makes people feel good,” says the assistant manager, Sandra Quam. “Our whole crew was pumped about it, let's keep it going! We had people come here just because they heard about it and wanted to be a part of it."

The ‘Pay It Forward’ chain lasted from Thursday until Saturday.
