If you've ever wanted to make a difference in someone's day, this is the way to do it. It's simple too.
By actually being the Drive Thru Difference, you can easily brighten someones day, week, or who knows... you might even change their outlook on life.
Together we can impact our community in such a powerful way.
The concept is simple.
Print this note, then drive to the fast food or coffee place you like to visit... place your order... then, when you get to the drive thru window, kindly tell the cashier/window worker that you'd like to bless the person in the car behind you. At that point you pay for both orders and hand the worker the note you printed from this site.
In the end... you do something sweet for someone else, the window worker is blessed by seeing your spirit behind paying, and the person you paid for may also pay it forward the next time around. It's all about creating community and pointing others towards Jesus Christ in even the simplest of ways.
If you are ready to BE the Drive Thru Difference then print this form and see you at the drive thru soon!

I went to DD this morning to get a coffee, and when I went to pay the clerk told me today is your lucky day the lady in front of you paid! I will pay it forward upon my next visit, watch out because if you are behind a mini van at DD, it just might be your lucky day!!!
I was at dunkin donuts this morning ready to pay for my coffee, the cashier said the lady in front of you paid for you, I said really surprised, that was very nice and I was not expecting that, that made my day, I have a meeting today that I'm worried about, so for someone to make my day brighter, thank you so much for that white car in front of me :)
My wife and I (and our two young children) were at Starbucks, which we normally cannot afford, and we weren't having a great day but we decided to splurge and indulge a little. We ordered our 2 Large Frappucinos, got to the window, and to our amazement, the car in front of us paid for our drinks. So from our family to yours, thank you so much for this gift you have given us, it turned our whole day around, and we can't wait to "Pay it Forward"!
I was at Taco Bell drive thru today at East Windsor, CT. When I approached the drive thru window to paid for my order, the cashier told me a woman front of me just paid my order and left a note from Q99.7. Wow, this kind of things doesn't happen in today's society. I wanted to thanked the lady for her kindness. It's nice to see in today's crazy society, there are still nice people who want to do the right and kindness thing.
I was in the Dunkin Donuts drive thru in Feeding Hills a few days ago and the person ahead of me paid for me and gave me a letter. I thought wow that is wonderful that there are great people in the world still. I was so happy so today I paid for the person behind me. I listen to your radios station all the time and love it and think that this drive thru experience is a great thing.
I woke up at 3:30 in the morning to take my son to work. When I got back I sat on the driveway for a bit listening to a song that brought a lot of memories and tears because you see, I am a 45 year old widow. The song made me think about my husband and all the struggles I am going thru lately. So I sat there and cried for a bit. Then I got out of my car and went back in the house to get some more sleep before I have to get up again to go to work myself. I then get up around 7sh and get ready for work and head out to dunkin donuts for my morning coffee. When I got to the window, I was told that my coffee was already paid for and there was a very touching note attached to my coffee. It?s been a long time since I?ve felt my spirit genuinely lifted and I vowed for the rest of the day I would not let anything or anyone take that little bit of happiness that that note brought to me! And so I spoke it and it was a great day and night. Thank you so much for the kindness of the stranger in a white car that brought me to smile yesterday, and for your radio station for making it happen and passing the word.
As I pulled up to Dunkin Donuts with my last $10 trying to make sure I had enough to pay for munchkins for my daughter who wanted to bring them in for her friends at school, and making sure I had enough money left over to buy a gallon of milk for my son, I get a note from the cashier... I read it and before I could wave at the stranger in front of me, she had already driven away. The stranger paid for my purchase. I am so greatful! I feel blessed because that was truly my last $10 until pay day next week. She made my day and it's been a great day thus far. Thank you Q 99.7 and thank you to my total stranger...blessings to her and her loved ones.
I am a cashier at Dunkin Donuts. During the morning rush this morning, a woman came through the drive thru and told me she wanted to pay for the car behind her and handed me a note. I passed it along to the next car and told her that her order had been paid for and she was amazed. She handed me back the note and told me she'd like to pay for the car behind her. I gave the note to the next person and they also gave it back and paid for the next order. This continued on for 6 cars in a row. The chain was broken when a woman couldn't afford to pay for the car behind her. About an hour later, that same woman came back, bought another coffee, and handed me back the note and told me she went home and now had enough money to pay for the car behind her. This continued on for another 3 cars. It really was an amazing thing to see.
I would like to thank the person who paid for my kids coolattas at Dunkin Donuts on Burnett Rd in Chicopee. It was very kind of you and it made our day!! We heard about the drive through difference before, in fact we were listening to the Q99.7 when we pulled up to the window. There was nobody behind us but we will pay for someone tomorrow and will pass that note on and I'm sure it will make someone's day just as much as it made ours.
God has been working in my life recently and began changing me. Today was a long day, i did what i usually wouldnt do on a normal vacation day. i was planning to relax the whole day before work. To start my mom had to be brought to her appointment, and then i had to go to pick my brothers up from school. right up until the time i had to fly to work. i decided to to pull up into the dunkin donuts near work for some coffee to wake and energize myself up. when i pulled up to pay, the cashier said that the previous customer bought a gift card for the next person in line.. i didnt see who the car was because there was no body in front of me. this truly gave me hope and a sense that God was really trying to show me something.. that He is real!!! :) Thank you whoever u are! you have encouraged me to do the same to others and brighten their days!!!
