Drive-Thru Difference

YOU are the Drive-Thru Difference.

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!

Here are a few of the stories that we have received:

Marisol - Springfield, MA

What a wonderful Morning, Thank You Jesus and Q99.7 for all you do... I want to start by saying I did the drive through defference today for someone at the DD drive through. what a rush, it was so exciting. someone did that for me, on a day that I was feeling so sad, that person made my day and it brought tears of joy to my eyes. So I wanted to bless someone else.

Markus - ,

I was at dunkin dounuts on my way to work and I was mad and grumpy I was picking up breakfeast for me and my friends/(coworkers) I knew it would cost quite a bit so I was dreading getting to the cashier but then when I get there he hands me a note saying "I paid for you today. No strings attached" It made my day that was dark stormy and grumpy into a rainbow filled sunshiny greatest day I've had in a long while!! So for whoever paid for me I want to say thank you so much and may God bless your heart and soul for me. Thank you again from the man in the car behind you!!

Monica - Westfield, MA

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!

Darlene - West Springfield, MA

Just wanted to say thanks to the car in front of me that paid for my drinks on Wed. April 30 at McDonalds in West Springfield. Kind of reminds you that there are still nice people in the world after so many horrible things happening. Thanks again and have a great day.

Kim - West Springfield, CT

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!

Margie - Suffield, CT

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!

Judy - Springfield, MA

My 12 year old daughter Rebekah wanted to do the drive thru difference the other day. We prayed as we approached the drive thru at McDonalds for whoever the Lord would put behind our car in line be who He wanted. That it be the person He chooses who could really use this message that day and hope. Finally a car showed up. A mom and her child. We paid for their order which was their dinner for that night. The joy we got when we saw the smile on her face when they gave her the note will always stay in our hearts and mind. What a blessing to be able to be a part of something so unique and special in God's plan. PS: We can't wait to make a difference again soon!

Karin (pronounced car in - Enfield, CT

My kids and I started doing this about a year ago. Everytime we go through a drive through the kids "say do it mom". I can't do it everytime but we get such happiness from it when we do. Just to know you are making someone's day is the best feeling. I can only imagine Jesus and how he felt knowing the millions of people he was saving. I am so happy I found your station after my sisrer passed away. I love everything you all do. Especially the morning prayers!! Thank you all for the great gift you have bestowed upon this region of the country.

Sheyla - Springfield, MA

Today as usual I went to DD (Wilbraham, Ma)to buy my coffee in the morning to start the day ... In these past few days I've been going through some difficult times. So while waiting in line and listening to this radio station and beautiful praises, arriving at the window a cashier tells me that the person in front of me had paid for my coffee. I have to say, the emotion was so great that I tear' up!!! To you who today gave me great joy, God bless you and grant you the desires of your heart. Thank you brother/sister in Jesus Christ. PRAISE THE LORD!

Dionna - Springfield, MA

This morning on my way to work, I was venting to my best friend on the cell phone at Dunkin Donuts. When I got up to the window the cashier told me that I was all set and that the lady in front of me paid for my tea. They gave me the note and I read it and wave to the car in front of me.. That not only made my day, but made me think about life and the blessing that I have been receiving and I felt like I needed to give that feeling to someone else, therefore I printed the note and that weekend did the same. Thank You to The Q 99.7.

Hope for Today
