I love this idea - "Give and Let Live"

Just as in many other parts of the country, bars and restaurants in Lincoln, Nebraska, are struggling under these new and unusual circumstances.

Nick Tarlowski wanted to help local businesses -- and he wanted to invite others to help as well -- so he started a $100 tab at different places around town, calling his effort “Give and Let Live.”

All customers could show up and accept the $100 -- or pay it forward to help out the next person. Sure enough -- most customers paid the bill forward, with the tabs rising to hundreds of dollars for the next customers to take advantage of.

The goal now is to raise $5,000 by Christmas. Amazingly, there are already tabs worth $3,200 going at different restaurants, so that big goal is within reach -- and might even be exceeded before all this is over. (Lincoln Journal Star)
