Folks swinging by Fiction Coffee for a java break on June 22 were treated to more than a great cup of coffee.

As part of CultureMap's new partnership with Frost Bank, and in celebration of our newly launched CultureMap Charity Guide, lucky patrons were treated to a morning of surprise giveaways designed to #frostitforward.

Whether they were meeting friends for coffee or powering up their laptops to work, Fiction Coffee patrons were surprised with a free coffee, discounts, and a special Frost cash card. In the spirit of spreading optimism, each card came with a note asking the receiver to use the money to spark a random act of generosity for someone else. 

Because we also want to #frostitforward, CultureMap has created our Dallas Charity Guide as a one-stop destination for area nonprofits and charities. Search for an organization by name or category to learn about the mission and how to give back. As a CultureMap reader, you will uncover inspiring and heartfelt stories about these organizations all year long as part of our Charity Guide special editorial series.

The pop-up was the first of several surprise events in Dallas over the course of 2018. Each month, the CultureMap street team will head to a secret location to surprise and delight Dallasites. Follow along on Instagram and Twitter for hints about our next stop.
