Pay It Forward Coffee Day!

Have you been thinking about doing something positive? Thursday, April 28 is the official Pay It Forward day where you can contribute to an act of kindness. Drop by one of the coffee shops listed below and participate in a Pay It Forward coffee event right here in DUMBO. To celebrate the day, the DUMBO BID will start off a Pay It Forward chain so join us for some delicious coffee! Kindness can go a long way so let’s make a difference together! Plus, while you are enjoying your delicious coffee day, why not check out the wall of compliments at X? Pay a compliment forward too! 

We are also donating any additional money from Pay It Forward Coffee Day to Big Idea WeekBig 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.
