The Dailey Dose: ‘A Simple Cup Of Coffee and a High Five’

CUP COFFEE tree 300LEXINGTON, Ky. (12/11/13) — In July, Lexington was changed for the better when “A Cup of Common Wealth” opened its doors and made a movement to give back to those who needed it in the community. In the past couple of months, many small businesses in Lexington have been robbed, including “A Cup of Common Wealth,” and last night they decided to get together and add a little positivity to those suffering this holiday season.

“We want to combine what we do already with positivity and support to help anyone going through a tough time” said owner Chris Rotiv.

After putting up their shop Christmas tree, they have started a movement to make sure that everyone will be getting a gift this Christmas.

“We want people to bring in any type of gift, wrapped or not, and put it under the tree,” said Rotiv. “It will be for anyone that just may need a present here in our city.”

Also, they are supporting other small businesses that have been robbed and are promoting Lexingtonians to visit them and in return they will pay it forward.

“We aren’t crime fighters or super heroes but we know for sure what some love can do for people in these situations,” read an Instagram post made by ‘A Cup of Common Wealth,’ “help any of the small businesses in any way to get them back in business and you get a pay it forward for anything from us.”

While trying to pick up the pieces themselves, the owners of “A Cup of Common Wealth” want to remind people that times are tough, but that shouldn’t stop anyone from sharing their love and support.

“Don’t give up on people. Make it a mission to always look up, say, 'Hello,' give a smile or even slap a hand,” the Instagram post read. “This helps us lay the ground work to build something better together when it is all said and done. Even if it all starts with a simple cup of coffee and a high five.”

Rotiv encourages people to stop by the local businesses and pay it forward. The holiday season might be cold, but the people in our community shouldn’t be.

Pay it forward this holiday season; help those who need it most.
