Paying it forward, one dollar at a time.

Even a few bills can make a huge difference over time. When the staff at the Siesta Key Oyster Bar in the Florida Keys were brainstorming ways to help people in the Bahamas after Hurricane Dorian, they realize the answer was all around them. The bar has a tradition where patrons staple a dollar to the walls, or doors, or the bar itself, or any surface. It's a cool visual, but an even cooler donation.

The staff spent the entire month of September gently prying each bill off, and when all was said and done, they had accumulated $13,961 to donate. "You pay it forward," says the bar's general manager, Kristin Hale. "It gives it a whole new level of respect for what you do, when you have the ability to pay its forward."
