CLEVELAND -- It started as a simple gesture, and it has turned into a movement.
Standing in line for lunch grew into a campaign called "Stringless Love."
“My heart was definitely telling me to pay for the next person, so I paid for the next person and that person paid for the next person,” explains Nu Covenant member Mark McMillon.
“I told Michael, like dude, we can really motivate people to love other people.”
The group of singers and musicians are performing random acts of kindness in the greater Cleveland area.
Over the past year they’ve recorded video of the moments and posted them on Facebook.
“We could show the world that there’s love out there. We can motivate people to give by what we’re doing,” says Nu Covenant member Michael McMillon.
The Christian group digs deep into their own pockets to give back to others, pooling anywhere from a few bucks up to $1,000. They’ve paid for meals at Chipotle and Denny’s as well as gas at Sheetz.
“We’re trying to get to the point where it gets bigger and bigger. The more we get blessed we want to buy cars for people we want to buy houses for people,” says Mark.
“We read what love is in the Bible. Love is patient, love is kind, love keeps no record of wrongdoing, love is not self-seeking. So, if we’re thinking of ourselves then we’re not showing true love.”
The group is doing something different for their next “Stringless Love” giveaway on Feb. 19.
They’re teaming up with the Chick-Fil-A location in Warrensville Heights as well as Greater Fair Temple in Cleveland to feed homeless families.
