Be kind, rewind — uh, what is this, the '90s? We prefer to pay it (fast) forward when it comes to kindness, and Fairview's Beaucoup Bakery seems to agree. Owner Jackie Ellis endeavors to spread kindness far and wide, which is why she implemented the Acts of Kindness program at her divine café. Every time you grab a java or chai, you earn points that you can spend on yourself, pass on to a friend (or, anonymously, to the next person in line), or pay forward. If you choose the last option, your points are used to feed school lunches to Liberian girls, as part of a partnership with More Than Me. Just think: Your latte habit translates into lots of meals for deserving students — better get two!
