Pay It Forward

Today on twitter a very cool travel story emerged. A passenger on an American Airlines flight was hit by a sudden fee when boarding her flight. This sudden fee meant she would have to miss her flight as they didn’t take cash and her credit card issuer wasn’t aware that she was back from a trip and wasn’t working. Just as she thought all hope was lost and she wouldn’t be able to make her flight a man appeared behind her.

He asked how much the fee was and the desk told him it was $50.00.  This man then paid the fee for her and told her to enjoy her flight.  When she found him at his first class seat she offered to pay him back. Instead he told her to pay it forward. This man was Arizona Cardinals Tight End Jermaine Gresham.

This is what’s great in the world! Random acts of kindness make the world a better place. If you take just one thing away from hearing this story let it be: pay it forward.
