AUGUSTA, Ga.---We're overdue for another feel-good story! We've seen her giving away free gasoline and even flip flops at a pool. Now Give it 4Ward heads to the movies!

"We're at the movies," sang Candye Smith. "We're at the movies."

The corn popped, people rushed off to the next show, and Candye was on the move.

"I'm going to treat you to the movies," said Candye. "Oh yeah that's great," said Marianne Wood as she gave Candye a high five.

It's the latest random act of kindness from Candye's Give it 4Ward organization.

"I think this is a great treat," said Marianne. "Who would have thunk it."

"I didn't know what it was," said Lasha Jackson. "I was asking. What's going on? I hope ain't nothing happening when I'm trying to watch a movie."

It was just a complete stranger Giving it 4Ward on what turned out to be a rare mother daughter outing.

"I never get treated to the movies," said Lasha's mother Bonnie Hickman with a smile. "So she was treating me, and now you all treated me. That is so nice."

"That's what Give it 4Ward does," said Candye. "Put a smile on your face."

It is all thanks to your donations.

"When someone gave me the money and said I want you to go out and Give it 4ward," said Candye. "I thought about something that would be fun, and everyone likes to go to the movies."

"I'm excited you don't even know right now," said Steven Beard.

"I think this is a wonderful thing to do just to cheer people up and make their day," said Marianne.

"It's a blessing," said Bonnie.

"You never know where Give it 4Ward will show up next," said Candye.
