The Butterball Effect

A single memory of an unknown man handing my mom a Butterball turkey on a cold winter day has shaped my entire life.

I have no recollection of the man’s appearance nor race or religion. This memory holds no details about how old I was or the presents I unwrapped that year. In fact, the only other detail that remains vivid is how he made me feel. Loved and normal. No strings, no IOUs, no guilt or shame for being poor. Just loved as a human being.

This man could not have rationally expected that a twenty dollar turkey would alter that little boy’s life for the next twenty years; indeed, he probably thought it would only make a momentary impression later that evening when we all sat down to give thanks. He wasn’t trying to change the world; he was just doing something kind and good because he believed it mattered.

For as long as I can remember, I’ve tried to show my gratitude for that stranger’s random act of kindness by paying it forward in my own way. I have given my school lunch to a homeless man on a field trip and helped a single mom get home to her kids one snowy evening. After college, I volunteered with the Peace Corps as a teacher in Tanzania and created an HIV/AIDS education conference for students with disabilities.

Now, as a startup co-founder, I make games that encourage people to share a few minutes of happiness with others. This season, we are partnering with a charity to bring joy into people’s lives by taking a moment to play games with people in need.
