RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) —  This holiday season, a local mom is encouraging people to pay it forward in memory of her daughter.

Lanie Kruszewski was killed four years ago by a hit and run driver while riding her bike along River Road.

03148b7e0f0a418fb15ed1508de386f9Just a couple of months ago, her mom, Patty, started handing out what she angel tags. They are little yellow cards that encourage people to do a good deed in Lanie’s memory.

“It can be a gift or you can run an errand for them. You can buy a coffee for somebody in line behind you,” says Patty Kruszewski.

Once you’ve performed that random act of kindness, the hope is that the next person will pay it forward.

“I wanted to make it go further than just one person,” explains Kruszewski, “So I put space for initials on the back and once you pass this to somebody else, you initial it and then the recipient of your good deed has to do it again. it’s a challenge.”

Lanie’s mom hopes the angel tags will spread a little kindness in the world.

“I know she’d approve of this because it was so close to her heart, the idea of just doing nice things for people,” she says.
