Sunnyvale-based Yahoo set out to spend $10,000 on groceries at Foods Co. on Wednesday to promote its nationwide random-acts-of-kindness program. The technology company wants to steer Americans to its website, kindness.yahoo.com, where folks can “update” their kind acts and learn the ripple effect they have created.
Nicole Washington, 34, of Hunters Point paid only $48 for a full shopping cart of groceries after receiving the $100 gift. She said she could now buy food for the holidays she previously could not afford.
