The most amazing series of acts of kindness took place October 5, 2015, in the Bailey Cafe, when one small act led to more than a dozen.
A long time and loyal customer that morning stopped to pay her bill, and paid the bills for two other tables. One of those tables picked up another. Then a customer picked up two more. From that point on, customers in the Cafe paid it forward, picking up other people’s bills.
According to a Bailey Cafe representative, “It made your heart sing with joy.” They are grateful to the diner who started the dominos, “It reaffirms the good in the world.”
All-in-all 14 customers were affected by the generous act. It began with one person: a small gift of goodness started by one person and impacting staff and customers all day.
