Caffeinated Kindness: Toronto cafés encourage customers to pay it forward

Press Release

Happening August 7th at 11 independent cafés across the city, #BuyTOaCoffeeDay has been kick-started by an anonymous benefactor to encourage Torontonians to appreciate small acts of kindness and pay them forward to others in their community.

What’s Happening

Eleven coffee shops will be giving away a total of 1,100 coffees (or teas) to the first patrons through the doors. Each individual café will start with 100 coffees to give away. The complimentary caffeine hit comes with just one simple catch: each person to receive a free coffee is asked to pay the kindness forward to another. Why? Toronto is having a tough summer and needs a good news story.
