In her hands, Laura Benedict from the Red Barn Cares Foundation hold's 100 $5 bills which she is giving out in Augusta this morning. She wants to pay-it-forward and is doing it with no qualification for the recipient other than being in the right place at the right time.

Laura and her team are always coming up with ways to help the community...sometimes with fundraisers for those suffering from a serious illness or struggling with the loss of a loved one. Sometimes, by just handing out money...as she's doing today.

Is she making a difference? You bet! In a lot of lives and, more importantly, in the way people think. Helping something can be big or it can be small. The key point that Laura is making is, everybody can help in some way. She feels it's especially important that successful businesses in the area give back to the community that supports them.

Good luck, Laura, and thank you for all you do!
