(KTVI) - Facebook has changed the way millions of us communicate and connect.  As FOX2's Elliot Weiler shows, it's even bringing complete strangers together in Thursday nights edition of Pay It Forward.

It started as a hobby.

They`re really cute; she makes all kinds.  If you want it she can find the ribbon to make it.

That ribbon becomes a bow, make enough and you've turned a hobby into a business called Miss Mia's Bows.

Chandra Knight has purchased some of them from bow-maker Melissa Stancic's Facebook page.  That's where she also noticed a posting about Melissa making and donating bows to sick children in hospitals.

I was like that is really awesome that you would take it upon yourself, money out of your pocket, to donate to children’s to give to little girls to make them feel better about themselves.

And that's why Chandra nominated Melissa for our $500 pay it forward award.

Chandra thank you so much for the nomination.  On behalf of FOX2 and AEM we`d like to Pay It Forward, I`ll count out one, two, three, four, five hundred dollars.

We surprise Melissa at her home and it's quite a surprise since she and Chandra have never met.

On behalf of American Equity Mortgage and FOX2 News here is one, two, three, four, five hundred dollars.  I am honored; thank you so much.

Honored and humbled, Melissa says donating bows is the least she can do to help others.

I have met so many wonderful children doing this and I am blessed to have healthy children and I see a lot of people struggling with unhealthy children, so anything I can do for a fundraiser; I’ll put a bow basket together.

It's a win-win for everyone.

It warms my heart and that`s why I do this because they get so happy and it makes me happy.
