Day 10: Pay it ForwardThe Acts of Kindness Advent Calendar was born in 2012 with the goal of creating ripples of kindness in the world. Today we want you to think of something someone did for you recently and pay it forward to an unsuspecting beneficiary creating even more ripples of kindness. 

Here’s one way: When you’re getting your morning coffee at the drive-thru, tell the barista that in addition to buying your own coffee, you’d like to pay for the person behind you. The recipient will feel lucky and the barista will appreciate it too.

If you don't drink coffee, feed a random parking meter, or do a chore that is usually done by someone else. Perhaps the recipient will be inspired to pass the kindness on to someone else.

Have fun sending ripples of kindness out into the world and share your stories below.
