Best Use of a Legacy

What’s the best way to honor the memory of a beloved relative? Why, spend the money she left you, of course! But not on yourself — do what Mahaffey Marketing Director Windy Lawson did with the inheritance she received from her grandmother, Phyllis: She paid it forward, every day, by giving the money away in multiple daily acts of kindness to strangers, all linked with things that Phyllis loved: cats (Windy paid for cat adoptions at the SPCA); coffee (she picked up the tab for nine people at Starbucks); grocery shopping (Publix gift cards); and so on for 40 straight days. Read about her odyssey of generosity on her very touching blog, 40 Days of Kindness, a tribute that would make any grandma proud.
