Kind Acts: The $5 Project

I used my 5 dollars to buy a coffee, water, and blueberry muffin for a man who was sitting on the sidewalk of Washington St. near Downtown Crossing. We also had a conversation about the Red Sox.  

                                        ~ John Ahonen

On June 10, twenty volunteers received an envelope containing a $5 bill. The volunteers were instructed to use the $5 to do something kind: help someone in need, brighten someone's day, etc. Volunteers were then asked to share their story. We invite others to join us in the $5 Project. Send us your stories (This email address is being protected from spambots.
