Going above and beyond for one

For those who are deaf, it can be difficult to communicate in simple, daily situations. And worse, many of the people they come across day to day can’t communicate with American Sign Language. However, Crystal, a Starbucks barista in Leesburg, Va., wanted to ensure that one of her regular customers, Ibby Peracha, had the same experience as everyone else. So, she took it upon herself to learn sign language so she could communicate with him comfortably. Her efforts — and his gratitude — are inspiring.

So the question turns to you. Have you ever made an effort for just one? It would be different if, say, Crystal’s Starbucks was in the home of a dear school. But she has just one deaf customer. Yet still.

Yet still she made the effort.

What effort do you need to make today for just one? Do it. Live more Awesome.
