In 2018, Lyn Thomas of Birmingham, Alabama, heard a sermon about intentionally donating to people and causes that you'd like to see grow. She considered the message and then her job as as a convenience store clerk. But then she decided if she just committed a portion of each check to charity she wouldn't miss it. And with that launched her Sowing on Purpose project.
When the 35-year-old isn’t working at her job as a convenience store assistant manager, she likes to bless strangers with little gifts of money. Lyn makes a game of her giving, posting on social media asking her followers to pick a color or number and giving the person who responds with the correct answer a cash surprise to help pay for some groceries or flowers or a meal.
Lyn wants to sow seeds of kindness and show love, “just because.” She says that giving unconditional love, kindness and compassion will set her free.
