Festivalgoers who were headed to weekend two of ACL got a surprise pick-me-up when they visited the iconic South Congress location of Jo's Coffee on October 13. The first 50 people in line from 9-10 am received a coupon for a free coffee, courtesy of Frost Bank and CultureMap.
Roughly 75 people started their day off with a huge dose of optimism, receiving fun hats and clever koozies in addition to their free cup of joe. The first 33 people to pop in also received a $15 Frost cash card, with the instruction to #frostitforward and use it to do a good deed for someone else.
Even those who didn't walk away with a cash card were encouraged to brighten someone else's day, and then show us how they did so by tagging @culturemapatx and using the hashtag #frostitforward on Instagram. One lucky do-gooder will win a one-night stay at the Fairmont Austin — breakfast included.
This unexpected java jolt was the latest in a series of pop-ups that are helping Austinites show generosity and spread optimism. It's all part of CultureMap's partnership with Frost Bank and in celebration of our comprehensive CultureMap Charity Guide, which is your one-stop destination for area nonprofits and charities.
CultureMap and Frost Bank will be hosting more of these pop-up events throughout 2018, surprising and delighting folks all over Austin. Want a hint on where we might show up next? Follow along on Instagram and Twitter for hints about our next stop.
