Tune in on Thursday, April 17 at 11:00 am MST on Pay It Forward Radio when I interview Dustin Rumsey with Pay It Forward Paragould.  Dustin Rumsey is a dedicated community leader from Paragould, Arkansas which he calls the small town with a big heart. 

To listen:  MileHi Radio

Dustin serves on several boards of non-profit organziations and is the founder of Pay it Forward Paragould: a community based group focused on random acts of kindness and promotion of the pay it forward movement.   Dustin and his group was responsible for the Candy for Caraway candy drive where they gathered about 1,000 lbs candy for their neighbors in Caraway, Arkansas who were victims of a hurricane on Halloween night 2013.   Just this month Pay it Forward Paragould collected 600 lbs of peanut butter and jelly for  the backpack programs in local schools which is a program designed to help feed kids who might not have food outside of school.

Inspired by simply stumbling upon Charley Johnson’s youtube videos one night Pay it Forward Paragould has grown into a network of great people and businesses in the community that just want things to be better and make a difference.  Dustin started by speaking to civic groups about the Pay it Forward movement and handing out Pay it Forward bracelets and cards in the community to gain momentum.   Now, he has turned his attention toward reaching students by giving pro-kindness programs in schools talking about the impact they can have with pay it forward and that they have the superpower of kindness to make the world a better place.

Since it’s founding in September 2013 Dustin and Pay it Forward Paragould have been featured on the cover of the Premiere magazine, has had several stories in the local newspaper and news, as well as being named a “Difference Maker” in the community by the Paragould Daily Press in 2013.
