Spreading Largesse In Lansing, Mich.

Filed by KOSU News in US News.
August 28, 2012

Our town, Lansing, has been hit hard by the economic challenges of the past few years. But you can still find generosity.

By day, Bob Hoffman is a public relations manager at the Michigan State University performing arts center. By night (and weekend) he does good things — like leading a bunch of people to commit acts of thoughtfulness.

Bob’s mob may pay for someone’s parking at the hospital or someone’s purchase at a supermarket. They might hand out flowers, just for the joy.

As former Michigan Gov. Jennifer Granholm says on Bob’s website, “”Paying It Forward is a priceless gift.”
