Kindness Pass-Along Gift Cards

'Pay it Forward' Acts of Kindness

By Chris Dunmire

Extra! Extra! The Cincinnati Post plugs Creativity Portal's 'Kindness Pass-Along Gift Cards.' Read about it! »

Kindness Gift CardsYou've heard the heartwarming stories about people who have committed "random acts of kindness" by tossing extra change into a toll booth for the car behind it, or by paying for a cup of coffee for the next person in line. Often the kind deed is appreciated by the recipient, and wouldn't it be awesome if the incentive to "pass it on" is also present? Now it can be!

To help that "kind energy" to keep moving forward, I've invented one way to inspire more kind acts to continue from person to person through my Kindness Pass-Along Gift Cards. These cards are free for you to download, print, and use and are described in detail below. Read the story behind this nifty little card (here.) All printables on this page are for personal, non-commercial use.

The "Any Kind of Beverage" Gift Card is perfect for those times you wish to gift a stranger with a free cup of coffee, juice, soda, tea, or anything other type of drink. Simply hand your server the card and request that they give it to your "kind deed" recipient when they've been informed that someone else has paid ahead for their beverage. It's self-explanatory and makes their job easier! Use it in restaurants, fast-food places, coffee cafe's, bistro's and wherever else beverages are sold.
