A doctor in Lincoln, Nebraska, is hoping to spread kindness in his community by covering all of his patients' co-pays on Random Acts of Kindness Day.

As patients came into the Urgent Care Clinic of Lincoln, they were given a special kindness card and told by Dr. Don Rice that he was going to be paying their co-pays for the visit.

"I think that we have a culture that sometimes forgets that we can have a much better world if we start being kinder to each other,” said Dr. Rice.

The clinic saw nearly 80 patients on Monday and Dr. Rice estimates he took care of $4,000 worth of co-pays.

"It's just a nice surprise because nobody likes being sick so it was a nice little feeling to feel like someone cares,” said Marsha Artz.

Dr. Rice says the random act of kindness was inspired by a close family friend, who died from cancer.

"Even though she had two types of cancer, was always giving to other people, so we thought it would be fun to do this in her honor,” said Dr. Rice.
