In a world of a never-ending downward spiral of negativity, a small group of kids in Chesterton is trying to make a difference.

Much like the movie "Pay it Forward", this group of students on the leadership team at James O'Connor Martial Arts has started a revolution in their small town. They have created cards with a "Pay it Forward" theme and are spreading their good deeds all over town, leaving their cards everywhere they go, in hopes that others will do the same.

These students, ranging in age from 7-16, are completing any random act of kindness with no expectations, except that the person they do a deed for then also "pay it forward," like sending handwritten notes, small chores or helping someone in need.

What will you do today?
