PHOENIX, Ariz. -- Starting today, McDonald’s will be accepting a new kind of currency: Lovin’.

Participating McDonald’s restaurants will be spreading the love from Feb. 2 until Feb. 14. between 6 a.m. and 6 p.m.

Customers will be selected randomly after placing their orders, but instead of paying with cash they will be asked to pay with an act of Lovin’ instead. A McMuffin might cost a friendly fist bump, that double cheeseburger might run you a call to a dear friend, and a side of fries could be traded for a compliment.

Following the launch of McDonald's "Pay with Lovin'" Super Bowl commercial, the company is bringing a little extra love to participating restaurants across the U.S.

"We’re out to change the world," Jerry Gehrke of the Mcdonald’s on 7th Ave. and Indian School said. "Our philosophy is that a little more lovin’ can change a lot. If we can makes someone’s day, and they can pass it along and make someone else’s day, then that’s a win for everybody."

With just a small act of kindness, a little love can go a long way.
