Here are some ways to Pay it Forward this Pink Shirt Day:

Parking Meter Fairy

We’ve all been there. Cash in your $10 for coins and plug parking meters that are about to expire.


Buy someone a cup of coffee

Next time you’re in line for a coffee, pay for the person behind you, too.


Get ready for a rainy day

Stock up on umbrellas then hand them out to people who are caught out in the rain.


Watch a matinee

Treat a friend who is having a bad day and do something out of the ordinary. Catch a fun afternoon matinee to pass the time.


Send a note

A gesture in writing can make a world of a difference. Buy a few blank cards and tell someone you appreciate them to brighten their day.
