The notion of 'paying it forward' is becoming increasingly popular nowadays. The best way to explain this, is that its the opposite of paying someone back, when they have done something good for you. Instead, you would 'pay it forward' by doing a good deed or someone else. 

Helping others, builds community bonding, and also raises awareness of ordinary people, doing extraordinary things, which enrich the lives of others. One of the best examples of this, is the story of two  parents, from Pennsylvania, who honored their late daughter's memory. Their daughter,Alyssa, who was only 18, died after an epileptic seizure.On the day she died, she had asked her parents to bring her a Starbucks Pumpkin spiced Latte. for her the following day. 

Two days after her funeral, her grieving parents,decided to honor her memory by, paying it forward. So, they ordered 40 pumpkin spiced lattes, for 40 customers at their local Starbucks. They explained their idea to the manager, asking that they place a hashtag with Alyssa's initials on the cups. Starbucks, touched by the parents story also donated drinks. This story, went viral across social media and led to other Starbucks and coffee outlets worldwide, also honoring Alyssa. 

This touching memorial tribute has been a resounding success and perhaps, can offer some comfort, to her grieving parents. Alyssa's parents, said 
We're still in disbelief, and every time we think, ‘There's no way they can top this,’ something more amazing happens.”
There are many heartwarming random acts of kindness and devotion, by ordinary people. who do extraordinary things. Here are 12 of them
