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 want to thank the person that was in front of me at Dunkin Donuts in Springfield, MA. The order was for my daughter, but because i did not have to pay her breakfast today I can buy my medication today, God bless him or her and I pray to God that allows me to be able to do the same. I will take this gesture of kindness as a sign from God that my situation is going to get better.
I was having an off morning and decided to go grab some Dunkin' Donuts with my boyfriend. We ordered and drove up to the window and were SO shocked that someone would be so kind to do such a thing and pay for our breakfast. I've been stressed out and enduring a lot, and it made me so happy and appreciative that there are people out there that like to do things for other people. Thank you so much to the kind people who paid and passed on the note. You brightened my morning and my spirit!
God Bless, my story isn't so much that went threw a drive thru but as I was driven down liberty street there was a police officer directing cars around a light company truck and i said hi you must be very hot he said nice yes miss so I drove down the street bought him 2 gatorades went back and handed it to him and he was very thankful...Just wanted to share this mostly because I haven't made threw any drive thru today?
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.
I was up earlier than normal this morning to create tests for my students at William J Dean Technical High School. Figuring I needed a little upper I ordered a coffee from McDonald's near Exit 15 off I 91 in Holyoke. When I pulled up to the window to pay I was handed a ticket saying my order had been paid for and was handed a ticket. I deeply appreciate this kind soul for doing this. It uplifted my mood and knowing there is someone who cares about everyone is deeply special and appreciated. Needless to say the task of creating tests, which is a rather boring task was made better this morning. Thank you to whoever did this.
Had my coffee paid for this morning by the car ahead of me with your note attached. So very sweet!! Just yesterday I did a random act of kindness for the person in front of me at PetSmart by helping them with their bill... so it really is true that what comes around goes around! I will keep this note in my car and pay it forward next time I am at the drive thru. Thank you again!
I MAKE A HABIT OF PAYING FOR THE CAR BEHIND ME. ONE DAY I SAW THE EMPLOYEE TAKE MONEY FROM THE PERSON I JUST PAID FOR SO I WENT INSIDE AND ASKED THE MANAGER WHY. AFTER CHECKING WITH THE PERSON, HE TOLD ME THAT BECAUSE I PAID FOR THEIR ORDER THE PEOPLE NOW HAD ENOUGH MONEY FOR A DRINK! GOD SURE PUT THE RIGHT CAR BEHIND ME!
I was in line at the Dunkin Donuts drive thru this morning on Riverdale Road in West Springfield. I went to pay for my order and the girl said 'no' I said 'what' she said 'the lady ahead of you paid for you this morning' I said 'really???!!' She laughs 'yes, and here is a note she told me to give you'. 'WOW' I said. That was so nice of that person. It did make my day because this week has been bad for me. I had a major headache on monday, my husband was at hospital on Wed for a seizure like episode and yesterday my son had chest pain.....Thank you for your kindness 'the car ahead of me'.
I have been dying to do the drive thru difference. When I got my first pay check I instantly wanted to go to the nearest Dunkin. I didn't get the chance to print out those notes so I wrote it on a piece of paper (lol) when I got my chance, as we were leaving I looked at the driver in the car behind me and saw the shocked looked on there faces followed with the biggest smile I've ever seen. I loved doing it so I pledge to keep on giving!
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.
