If you go in a Starbucks and buy someone else's favorite beverage, Starbucks give you a free tall brewed coffee (through tomorrow). From Starbucks:
"Our customers do amazing things everyday. 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."
Looking forward to seeing what stories come from this! It's amazing what connections you can make by just offering such a simple gesture.
