Try something different.

When you go to the drive-up window on Backward Day, pay for the order for the car behind you or buy a gift card at the coffee shop and give it to someone entering as you leave. Children will have lots of fun doing all kinds of things backward today. Entertain children by asking them to count from 100 to 1, say the alphabet backward, wear their shirt backward, walk backward and spell their name backward. Guaranteed laughs for everyone. #WhatFriendsDo

Who we are

How we've helped

"It's stressful for me to plan a homemade meal so WhatFriendDo's idea to take a breakfast basket was just my speed. I delivered a basket of bagels, fresh fruit, homemade muffins, coffee and orange juice. I felt really good about it and my friends loved it. "

Amy G. Houston, TX

"My husband loves video games so my WhatFriendsDo personal concierge suggested setting up times for friends to come play with him. This idea was a big hit and it really helped pass the time of a long in-home recovery."

Jamie E. Ann Arbor, MI

"To celebrate my friend coming home from the hospital, WhatFriendsDo suggested we line the streets with friends holding up signs of love and support. I cannot describe the feeling of seeing these on our path home and of course, she felt like a celebrity."
