I have a couple of Philanthropy Friday posts in the wings, but they are not quite ready for publishing yet. Instead, I will share with you a photo that was posted to my Facebook wall by a friend who also happens to be featured in one of the stories in my book, Simple Giving.
Ben Grant, owner of Bad Dog Deli and Dirigo Public House in Scarborough and Yarmouth, ME respectively, is in the chapter on Everyday Acts of Kindness. The photo he shared with me might clue you in on why you’ll find him there.
“Coffee on the wall” is a similar concept to pending coffee that I also mention in the book. You pay for an extra coffee or sandwich and leave that credit for someone else to use in the future. Someone who might not be able to afford the items otherwise.
It’s simple, easy and doesn’t require a lot of time or money. That’s the whole concept of simple giving.
Will you purchase a pending coffee or put a coffee on the wall in your local coffee shop?
Each Friday, the another jennifer blog shares stories of those who incorporate philanthropy into their everyday lives – personally and professionally – in a creative and unique way. If you have a story you’d like to share, please contact Jennifer.
