Starbucks pays it forward

And Starbucks is hoping to show lawmakers the importance of helping each other.

The company has launched a new campaign called "Pay It Forward" which runs through Friday. Customers who buy a drink for the customer next in line will get a free tall brewed coffee for themselves.

The CEO of starbucks said the government shutdown has created a period of uncertainty in the U.S. He says this "pay it forward" type campaign is meant to help people support one another during this challenging time.
