Day 1: Gave A Hard Working StreetWise Vendor Money For Groceries

For the past month, Jewel has been running a promotion where you get game pieces to win prizes for spending certain amounts of money and buying certain products (very similar to the Monopoly game from McDonalds). My wife and I have become somewhat addicted to collecting game pieces, and have shopped almost exclusively at the Jewel on Division and Dearborn. One constant of this specific Jewel location is the presence of StreetWise vendor, Renee. It doesn't matter if it is freezing cold, raining or snowing, Renee is always outside selling StreetWise. So, recently, Lindsey and I have collected the right game pieces to win a $20 grocery gift card. We decided that the best way to spend the gift card would be to give it to Renee so that should could purchase some groceries for herself.


  1. I know exactly who you're talking about. And you're right. She's there all the time. A cool and unexpected gift.

  2. I am amazed by these acts of kindness. So much so, I hope to start something on my own. I will be following this closely.

    All the very best to you.
