Keep giving from the heart, inspiring others through words and deeds, and posting here to encourage us all. Thank you sridevi.

Tom F. wrote: A request for my fellow starbucks patrons: the next time you are in the drive-through when a feeling of philanthropy hits please don't buy a latte for the bmw driver behind you. Consider dropping the five dollars in the salvation army kettle or picking out something nice for toys for tots. You may not get to see the recipient of your generosity but it won't go unappreciated.
