True story, a man walked into a Starbucks in Tulsa Oklahoma, ordered his coffee, and then paid for his and the strangers coffee behind him. This one act started a chain reaction of generosity that concluded with 185 people buying coffee for the stranger behind them.
For one afternoon in a Starbucks in Tulsa Oklahoma, the reality of 185 people changed. 185 people began considering the stranger standing behind them before they considered themselves.
One stranger, with one cup of coffee, changed the world for 185 people, for one afternoon.
Be generous. Not just to the people you know, but to everyone you come in contact with. You never know what you may start.
