No, this isn’t a secret mission from the latest episode of Scandal.
Let me tell you about my day yesterday.
Actually, let me show you. This pretty much sums up my entire day.
One cranky newborn.
One toddler cutting his molars and under the weather.
One very messy, chaotic, out of control house.
One very overwhelmed mommy.
I was pretty crabby yesterday. I’m not going to lie. So tonight, when my friend sent me a link to this fun little pay it forward game circulating through Instagram called Operation Redcup, I knew I had to join in. (#operationredcup) I needed the boost in my mood that comes from paying it forward!
Someone started this by loading their Starbucks card and posting the card number to Instagram with encouragement for people to have a cup of coffee, on her. And then a few other people jumped on board with this fun idea – and then strangers started reloading her card so that even MORE people could have free cups of coffee…do you see where I’m going with this? It’s like a big giant pay it forward movement with the Starbucks Red Cup…which, as we all know, kicks off the start to one of the best times of year.
So, to combat my crabby mood from yesterday – tonight I decided I would do the same thing. I’m posting my Starbucks card on Instagram & here on the blog in the hopes that a few people will grab themselves a free cup of coffee and that someone will pay it forward by reloading it, which you have to do from your computer:
And maybe I can convince one or two of you to join in and do it too! Just show the barista this picture on your phone, or give them the card number.
It’s the perfect time of year to pay it forward. A free Starbucks drink in the signature red cup will make someone’s day!
Every man shall give as he is able, according to the blessing of the Lord your God which He has given you. ~ Deuteronomy 16:17
Looks like someone used the entire card in one purchase. Kinda bummed about the dishonesty BUT it’s a chance for someone to reload it…who’ll take me up on it?
