Thursday, April 24 is 'Pay it Forward Day'. We live and work in a community that already gives so much, so The Leaf & Bean would like to give something to you. Come in to The Bean on April 24 and get any size drip coffee or iced tea on the house! They only ask that you pay it forward.

There is tremendous power and positive energy in giving. 'Pay it Forward Day' is about all people, from all walks of life, giving to someone else and making a positive difference. At last count, there were more than 500,000 people in 60 countries around the world participating on the day.

Why Pay it Forward? (

  • To encourage all of us to embrace the incredible power of giving
  • To show each other that we care and that there is love, hope and magic all around us
  • To know that we may be only one person in this world, but to one person, at one time, we are the world

Your pay-it-forward act doesn't need to be monetary. You could donate food to the food bank, give some of your books to the library, take some old clothes to Sack's, or sweep your neighbor's sidewalk.

If you would like to make a monetary contribution, The Leaf & Bean will have a donation jar for Family Promise of Gallatin Valley (their non-profit partner for the second half of April). You could always donate to another cause that's close to your heart!
