Pay It Foward

Just wondering if anyone here has ever paid it forward to someone who needs help? My mom did a wonderful thing. A co-worker was going around asking if anyone knew of a family that needed help that they could adopt. Really neat program. Anyway my mom said no one said anything so she told them about my cousin, her niece and how she hadn't been able to go christmas shopping for the kids because she had been in the hospital with her daughter for over a week and that her younger son is really sick to. The lady asked my mom if she was married and of course she's not. She's a single mother of four. So this co-worker said great and adopted her family. They went out and got a bunch of gifts for the kids and a gift card for grocries. They will be delievering the gifts on Saturday. I thought this was so cool. My cousin started crying when she found out what my mother did. She was so happy.
