Grassroots "Pay-It Forward"

Published On: Nov 27 2013 10:00:00 PM AKST

It started simply enough, but then an example of neighbors helping neighbors took off. A Juneau "Pay-It Forward" group has grown to more than 700 members and now they are inspiring other cities-- both in Alaska and the Lower 48.

Sisters Rinny Beth and Suzanne Tweedy started the Facebook group and have been amazed at the outpouring of support. People post on the group's page things they have to offer to others, or things they are in need of; that's all it takes for the group members to rush to action.

For a look that will lift your spirits, check out the Juneau chapter's "Pay-It Forward" Facebook page.
