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 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!
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?
Yesterday 3/16, was not one of my best days. After a sleepless night with severe back pain, i ended up in the emergency room at St. Francis Hospital for treatment and sent home with medication. On the way home, my husband and best friend and I decided to swing through MacDonalds in Enfield,CT. When we approached the window to pay we were given a note that said our meal was paid for, no strings attached, promoted by q99.7. To us it was a God-Wink. A bad day suddenly turned into one of thanksgiving and encouragement knowing that there are people out there who care about others no matter who they are or what they are dealing with. I want to thank the stranger in the white car with Massachusetts plates for their caring spirit and generosity, and for q99.7
making it happen. You definitely made a difference in my day and I promise to pass it on when I am better. God Bless you All!
Went through the drive thru on Memorial Drive in West Springfield this morning and when I went to pay I was handed the note. Shocked! I had never heard of this before and I just started to tear up. It has been a rough week and it just made me feel like someone was looking out for me.
Thanks to the nice lady in the red car!!
On Monday, while at a Dunkin Donuts in Enfield at the drive threw window when I pulled up to the window the girl at the window told me that the person in front of me paid for my order. The girl at the window handed me a paper with Q99.7 on it. It said that they heard about this being done and they wanted to pass it on and do something nice for some one. I just wanted to say it made my day and put a smile on my face. So today at that same Dunkin Donuts I passed it on to someone else and I hope it did for them what it did for me on Monday. So God bless to all!
I have been wanting to do the drive through difference since it started, but I don't often go to drive-throughs, and honestly, I thought what if the person behind me had a huge order?? What would I do?? So yesterday I decided to .. paid for my iced tea, and saw a van pulling up behind me with several people in it. I then remembered that I had a DD gift card in my wallet that I had never used .. so told the girl at the window that I wanted to pay for their order. She said, well its a big one - are you sure? I handed her the gift card which took care of it. I have been very stressed lately, and this helped me stop thinking about my own problems for awhile. Definitely a win-win situation. I will do this again very soon! Thanks for thinking of this!
Decided to use the last of my money today trying to make someone smile. I went through the drive through at Dunkin in Granby gave the cashier my money and DTD note. The girl took my money and said 'just so you know this has failed every time today'. I was shocked and said 'what do you mean? How can it fail?' She said 'pay it forward hadn't worked' everyone else who had their order paid for didn't pay for the car behind. This gave me a chance to witness!!! I said 'this is different. There is no obligation for my friend in the car behind me! This is ME... Doing something nice for them. No strings... No expectations. God can use this gesture of kindness in so many ways. I had the chance to show how God's love works.
I was driving in to work, the same as most days. Although today was not starting out well, I was being tailgated and nearly forced into an accident with a right-turning truck. I could feel the day was going to be a bad one and I was already stressed. I stopped at the north-end bridge Pride station for my morning coffee from Dunken Donuts when Abbey, the drive-thu window attendant, said that my coffee had been paid for and that this note was left for you by the car ahead. Well, what a complete turnaround! I felt so good about such a random act of kindness that I felt the morning stress just vanish. I know that whatever problems come up today I can look back at this gesture and be calm. Thank you, whoever you were, you made my day! The car behind you?
On my way to my first class in the morning, I went into the Dunkin Donuts in Springfield and they gave me the wrong order, which I didn't realize until I got to college... So on my way back home from class, I went into the Dunkin Donuts in Westfield. While getting ready to pay for my order, the lady told me that the car that was in front of me paid for my order and gave me a piece of paper. This kind gesture put a smile on my face! Thank you to the owner of the white car that was in front of me today! 11/10/16 :)
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.
