In today's edition of the "Good Stuff," an Indianapolis man uses social media to help students pay off their lunch debt. CNN's Chris Cuomo reports.
Ryan Cox is a man who already enjoyed paying it forward. He would pay for the order in the car behind him at the drive-thru.
But recently, his daily routine got a lot more advantageous.
Inspired by a friend, Ryan went to a local elementary school with a plan to pay off overdue lunch accounts for families who'd fallen on hard times.
Cafeteria supervisor Latiousha Smith explained: "He was like, 'You know, I just want to come and pay someone's balance' and I was like, 'Okay, so what's your student's name?'"
"I just want to pay random accounts," Cox told her.
So the generous man reached out on social media and raised $1,000 in five days. Cox had the $1,200 to pay off the balance for the whole school in no time at all.
