Thanks for your interest in UNEXPECTED 20s.
THE IDEA IS SIMPLE — Put a twenty dollar bill in one of the Unexpected 20 envelopes and carry it in your wallet or purse. Then watch for an opportunity to give it to someone in the restaurant and hospitality industry as a surprise. That might be a maid, a cook, a receptionist, a bus boy, etc.
The goal is to give it to someone not expecting it who you think could use some care. Look for someone having a hard day. Find creative ways to get one to those who work behind the scenes or in the kitchen. Consider enlisting your server to help by asking him or her to give it to the person having the worst day on the staff (be sure to also leave a GENEROUS tip also).
If you have kids, they will love helping to decide who to give it to — they may even want to be the one to deliver it. Share envelopes with your friends or business colleagues too.
