More than 100 people in one Illinois town were the recipients of pay-it-forward acts of kindness at a coffee shop.A customer used the drive through at a Starbucks in Moline over the weekend. That person paid for his or her drink and the order of the person in the next car. That started a chain reaction of people paying for the next customer's drinks.

Before it was all over, 160 customers took part.

Apparently a similar chain happened in Moline around the holidays as well. Some people in line even dropped $5 or $10 to pay for the next several drinks.
