A friend of mine owns the lovely Café Affogatto in downtown Spokane. Recently when I was in there, I noticed this “pay it forward board” in the café. It’s basically a way that you can leave a gift certificate for someone who meets certain criteria. People had left gifts for people who were jobless or who had a birthday that day. I love the idea of helping strangers and thought this was a small but lovely way to celebrate being in a society with others.
