April 25 is Pay It Forward Day, Do Acts of Kindness Now.
Whether you watched the movie "Pay It Forward" or just like the concept of helping people in advance, wouldn't you love to be one of the millions of acts
of kindness expressed as part of Pay It Forward Day, April 25th?
In the perilous time now of COVID-19, how can one safely Pay It Forward in Silicon Valley?
Put money in other people's parking meters (don't let the meter maids see you though).
Pay for the coffee of the person in line behind you at Starbuck's or Peet's Coffee.
Send a gift of coffee or treats from a local small business like The Living Room Coffee Craft in Campbell to someone in the hospital-or to the medical teams working in the hospital.
Give blood through the American Red Cross.
Volunteer to help in the community efforts to slow the spread of COVID-19 by supporting first responders, medical professionals and other service providers. Look up matches here by entering the local city in the search box.
Smile at everyone-or at least draw a smile on your mask.
We never know who our lives may touch in slight measure, so pay some kindness forward today.
