LANE Pays it Forward

“The smallest act of kindness is worth more than the grandest intention.” – Oscar Wilde

LANE marked its 25th anniversary earlier this month. To celebrate this significant achievement, we’ve launched a yearlong #25for25 anniversary campaign: 25 commitments for 25 years! From implementing initiatives that enhance company culture to strengthening client relationships and pledging more time for local volunteerism, LANE is committed to making a lasting mark as it begins this new chapter.

So, what’s our first commitment, you might wonder? Simple: Pay it forward.

We’ve each been given a $25 gift card to help us perform random acts of kindness in Portland and New York City. While we realize that random acts of kindness don’t necessarily have to involve financial transactions, LANE wanted to see how creative we could get when given the task of brightening someone’s day.

Stay tuned to Twitter and Instagram (#25for25 or #lanepr) to see what acts of kindness we’ll be dishing out over the next couple of weeks. Here are a few of the things I’m planning to do:

  • Anonymously leave kind notes for co-workers and friends
  • Pay for the next customer’s order when I’m in line for a cup of coffee
  • Buy a bouquet of flowers and then hand out individual flowers to random people
  • Bring bagels or healthy snacks into the office
  • Offer someone a hug
  • Hand out bottles of water to people experiencing homelessness
  • Bring in fun office supplies to liven up the workday for everyone
  • Leave extra quarters in my apartment’s laundry room

We’d love to have you join us for this cause. The possibilities are endless, and even if you don’t have a 25th anniversary to celebrate, there’s never a bad time to pay it forward!
