GRAND RAPIDS (WZZM) - Today is national "Pay it Forward" day, a day meant to spread positive energy, by doing something nice for a stranger or a loved one.
Here in West Michigan we have seen many acts of kindness, especially at Christmas time. Paying it forwward can include simple acts like paying for someone's coffee, all the way up to paying for a layaway order.
There are many different ways to get involved in the Pay it Forward craze: there's a smartphone app with songs and activities. You can download pay it forward cards and flyers.
Valleyview Elementary in Rockford is having a Pay it Forward Assembly today. Our own morning show producer decided to pay it forward herself by buying donuts for the morning crew.
