Kindness in A Cup: Depressed Teen Plans To Take Her Own Life When Barista Writes A Note

Bekah Georgy has been battling anorexia for most of her young life. Sometimes, when her eating disorder feels out of control, coffee is the only beverage she can drink. On her most difficult day, she went out to get coffee, not knowing that a kindness in a cup would change her life."Dear barista,
You didn’t know me and you didn’t know my story. Most importantly, you probably didn’t know writing the simple word 'smile' on my order would change my day for the better. When you look at me, you might assume I’m happy, bubbly, outgoing, and full of life. But you don’t really see the complete me.
You wouldn’t know that behind this plastered smile is a girl who has broken and fallen to pieces. You wouldn’t know this girl had so much self-hate, she starved herself for over half her young life, or that she’s tried to end her own life five times.I'm guessing you didn’t know these past few weeks, and that day particularly had been extremely hard.You were just going about your job, unaware that writing a minuscule word on my drink would change my day and possibly my life.Maybe you wrote 'smile' on my drink because you saw the feeding tube. Or maybe you could see past my fake smile because you’ve been where I am. Either way, I’m grateful. You didn’t have to make my order special. You could have treated me like another annoying customer.But you took that extra second to add some positivity to a life that’s been filled with so much negatively lately.You see, my day consisted of a horrible doctor’s appointment and a horrible therapy session. I was filled with hopelessness, and my suicidal thoughts were getting worse. When my anorexia is bad sometimes coffee is the only thing I can drink. But I was afraid to consume even coffee that day.If I hadn’t encountered that cup, I could have done more damage to myself that night.When I read that word, I couldn’t help but smile, literally.

A simple act of kindness can mean the world to someone. It can provide hope for the hopeless.
Now I plan to pass this hope along. So barista, thank you. Thank you for turning my day around.”

TICKET TO KINDNESS: Paying it forward

Mark Howell bought Claybourne Elder, now a Broadway actor, a ticket years ago when he couldn’t afford it. Given the ways in which his life and career have come full circle, Elder decided to pay forward the random act of kindness he had received from a stranger.

For the past two years, Elder and his 4-year-old son, Bo, have covered the cost of a stranger’s meal at a local diner once a month.

Mark Howell is an advertising agency owner and a theater enthusiast. His unplanned $200 gift to a stranger years ago inspired a chain of kindness.Learning how Elder lived his life, Howell was deeply moved by how his unplanned $200 gift triggered a chain of kindness that kept growing.

Convo with JK Diner’s JK Samgyupsal Unli Korean BBQ

The boy, Joshua, collected P199 from alms to eat samgyeopsal with his grandfather, but the restaurant owner treated them instead 🙏🏼☺At first, they didn’t have enough money so they left to earn more and told the staff that they would be back. When they returned, the restaurant served them their meal free of charge and even gave them take-out.Their story is a reminder to appreciate our blessings. A "regular" meal for us could be a banquet for another. When we realize how much we have, then we are moved to share and pass it on.

A stranger bought this Broadway star a ticket years ago when he couldn’t afford it. They just reunited.

Claybourne Elder wrote in an Instagram post: ‘If you know this guy — let me know. I would love to thank him.’By Sydney Page

A stranger approached him after the performance and spontaneously handed him $200.“You look like you were enjoying that show more than people who are sitting in the expensive seats,” the stranger said.He instructed Elder to use the money to buy good seats to the Broadway show “Sweeney Todd.”
Elder, now a 39-year-old Broadway actor, was a bit leery that evening as he stepped out of the show, “The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee.”
“I was deeply confused, and probably a little suspicious,” Elder said.
But it seemed like the chance of a lifetime.
An 8-year-old slid his handwritten book onto a library shelf. It now has a years-long waitlist.
“I wouldn’t have been able to afford tickets,” Elder said of the performance, which starred Patti LuPone.
The two snapped a photo together and parted ways. Elder didn’t get his name.Although there were other, perhaps more prudent, things Elder could have done with that $200 — such as putting it toward rent or meals — he decided to follow the stranger’s instruction and buy a ticket to the classic show about a wrongly imprisoned barber seeking revenge against the judge who falsely accused him of a crime.As a self-proclaimed “theater nerd,” Elder said, “I couldn’t imagine anything more exciting than to spend money on a play.”
Plus, the stranger told Elder that “Sweeney Todd” would change his life. He was right.
After watching the show from a stellar seat in the front row of the balcony, Elder was completely sold on starting a career on Broadway.

Elder is currently performing in the revival of Stephen Sondheim’s musical comedy “Company.” (Brinkhoff-Moegenburg)
“Seeing the kind of work that I wanted to do was just thrilling,” he said. “It was a show that I could see myself in.”
Elder relocated to New York City from his hometown of Springville, Utah, in 2008 to pursue his acting career. The stranger’s kindness, he said, is partly what influenced his decision to move to New York — a prospect that admittedly terrified him.
“In a city that I thought of as big and scary, to experience that kind of generosity, it gave me a lot of hope,” he said.
Elder is acting in the new HBO series “The Gilded Age,” as well as the recent revival of Stephen Sondheim’s musical comedy “Company,” in which LuPone is also performing.
There are so many Broadway actors in ‘The Gilded Age,’ it’s like being at the Tony Awards
“I am still who I was 15 years ago, watching Patti LuPone,” he said. “When I’m onstage watching her sing ‘Ladies Who Lunch,’ I am still that kid who is thrilled to be in the audience.”
Given the ways in which his life and career have come full circle, Elder has often sought to pay the random act of kindness forward. For the past two years, Elder and his 4-year-old son, Bo, have covered the cost of a stranger’s meal at a local diner once a month.

Bo is responsible for selecting the lucky recipient, then his father secretly pays for their bill. They call it “special breakfast.”
“I think exposing him to that sort of generosity from an early age is very important,” Elder said.Recently, he decided to further broaden his efforts. In an Instagram post on Dec. 30, the actor pledged to give away two free tickets to a “Company” show on Jan. 1. He invited people to enter the contest, citing a few conditions, including that those who enter should be “someone who could maybe not afford to come to the show otherwise.”

In the post, Elder explained the inspiration behind the initiative, sharing the story of how he got to see “Sweeney Todd” more than 15 years ago. He included the photo he held on to of him and the generous stranger and wrote: “If you know this guy — let me know. I would love to thank him.”
What happened next stunned him: Not only did donations from fans who wanted to cover the cost of additional free tickets start pouring in, but Elder’s fellow actor in “The Gilded Age,” Douglas Sills, called him and said he is friends with the man in the photo.“I was dumbfounded,” Elder said.
He learned the man was Mark Howell, who owns an advertising agency and lives in Los Angeles. He’s also a huge theater fan.

That same day, Sills coordinated a surprise FaceTime call with Elder and Howell. Within minutes, they were both in tears.Howell said he hadn’t thought about their exchange since the night it happened, but instantly, “the whole thing came back to me.”“I wanted to be an actor when I was his age, and I saw some of my enthusiasm and passion for theater in him,” Howell recalled.Howell was deeply moved by how his unplanned $200 gift triggered a chain of kindness that keeps growing.

Given the outpouring of support for Elder’s ticket initiative, he has continued raising funds through his Venmo account, with the goal of offering free shows to as many people as possible who wouldn’t otherwise be able to afford them.“Experiencing that joy of being given something and the surprise of it has reminded me of how wonderful it can be to help somebody,” Elder said.
So far, he has raised $10,000 and has donated more than 250 theater tickets. One stranger contributed $700.
“Every time I have a group come to the performance, in honor of the photo I took with Mark, I have them meet me outside the theater and we all get together and take a picture,” said Elder, who has printed each photo and placed a copy on the wall of his dressing room.

“There’s so much symmetry between what I did and what he’s doing. It’s really profound,” said Howell, adding that he hopes to fly to New York to meet his newfound friend and watch him perform.
“He gave me this gift 15 years ago, and I feel like, in a way, I got to give him a gift back,” echoed Elder.
Howell said it was, indeed, an “enormous gift.”
“Most people never get to see the effect that their kindness has,” he said. “I got to see how my random act resonated in somebody’s life and the ripple effect of that.”Read more:
