You know I’m all about Paying It Forward, considering that is what we do every week with the Mission Giveaway.
I got an email this morning from Starbucks saying that if you buy the person behind you their favorite drink, you’ll get a free brewed coffee. What a great way to #PayItForward.
Here are the details from Starbucks
. A customer buys the next person in line their favorite beverage—not as an act of charity or thanks—but an acknowledgement of commonality and humanity. The gesture is small, but the act is endlessly inspiring.
In times like these, small acts of civility like these make a big difference. With that, we are extending a gesture. If you come into Starbucks and buy someone else their favorite beverage, we’ll give you a free tall brewed coffee.
We’re hoping this small motivation will encourage you to be the spark of connection that helps bring us all a little closer at a time when showing our unity is so important.
#payitforward—and lets see what can happen.
Offer good October 9–11, 2013 at participating stores.
