The Pay the Bill Challenge
Today I walked into a store to purchase a backpack. As part of my purchase I went ahead and bought a gift certificate. I instructed the sales clerk to give the gift certificate to the next person who came up to purchase something. So basically, I helped purchase a product for someone who I have never met.
Yesterday I was talking about the act of giving to give. There was nothing behind the act I did today. I just knew that I gave to someone. I did not know the story behind whether that person deserves the money, needed the money, or who that person even is. To me this is a great way to practice giving to give.
I plan on doing this throughout this week. I hope you will join me and "pay the bill" this week. Maybe you just pick up the bill for a random person in a restaurant. Maybe you end up taking a friend out to dinner. There are a lot of ways you can "Pay the Bill."
It should be a fun week.
