How is saying being the change a bad thing?

I do this in the Starbucks drive thru when getting tea. I buy for the cars behind me.

If you want something to happen, do it!

 Its not  bad thing, its assuming that the OP and those commenting don't already do this.  "Then do it" implies "you aren't already doing this".

Also, buying for cars behind you, who are there because they can afford to spend money at Starbucks is very nice, but not the same thing as buying a pending coffee for someone who is too poor to afford it.  Right now we don't have a system that allows for that at most places, the best we can do is buy for folks who were already going to spend their disposable income there.  Getting the word out about this method of charity is a great idea, because maybe a business owner will start up a system like this.
