Pay It Forward Coffee Day!

Celebrate the official international Pay It Forward Day right here in DUMBO on Thursday, April 28, 2016 and do something positive for the community! 

Why not contribute to an act of kindness with us? Drop by one of the coffee shops listed below and participate in a Pay It Forward coffee event in the neighborhood. To celebrate the day, the DUMBO BID will kickstart the Pay It Forward chain with some extra cups of joe. Want to really make a difference? All additional monies from Pay It Forward Coffee Day will be donated to Big Idea Week at the end of the day. Big Idea Week is a program that builds a bridge between DUMBO tech startups and PS 307, a nearby elementary school. A model for project-based learning, connecting STEM to real life and teaching young students about entrepreneurship, 21st Century skills and careers. Big Idea Week now also offers online resources to help schools across the country host their own Big Idea Week programs. 

Kindness can go a long way so let’s make a difference together!
