Pay it Forward

04 Feb

Okay Friends – Here We Go!

My sweet friends at Nikitaland have started this monthly issue of Pay It Forward.  We asked for you to keep this in mind all month and to share things here today on what you have been able to do.  Paying it forward is not for bragging purposes – it’s an attempt to show how many different things we can do to pay it forward – lots of them don’t even include money.  Gestures that we take for granite may be a God send to another person.  So here we go – I’ll start on what mommy has done in the past month.

First up – Nikitaland sent me this cool bracelet.  I wear it to remind myself to Pay it Forward.  I even and bought some extra ones to pass out (see ordering information at the bottom of this post).  For example, twice I went through different drive thru restaurants.  One was McDonald’s and the other was a Chick-Fil-A.  I bought breakfast for the car behind me and asked the cashier to give the bracelet to the car as a reminder to Pay it Forward.  That way when they Pay it Forward, they can give the bracelet to another person to remind them to Pay it Forward and so on.  The packaging that the bracelet comes in tells the person to do this – what an awesome idea huh?

Also a couple of times during the month on garbage day, me and the hub unit took back the garbage cans of our neighbors.  It’s a little gesture that is absolutely wonderful – especially in this cold weather!

Also one night, mom stopped on the way home at Nana’s and brought her mail to her.

Mom/dad both ate at one night and met woman who is supporting her grandchildren.  She didn’t ask but mom/dad felt the need to give her a little something for the kids. It wasn’t much but hopefully it would help a little bit.

Thanks my friends for reading and supporting the Pay it Forward mission.  What did YOU do this month to make a difference?  Please post on your page and link back so everyone can see that it takes everyone making a small part to do a great dent!

My buddy Nikitaland made up a good deeds sheet.  You can get it here.  You can print it, hang it on your fridge and just jot some things down that you do during the month.  That way at our next meet up, you can share what you have done to PAY IT FORWARD.

AND if you are interested in getting some Pay it Forward bracelets, check out Nikitaland’s post here for ordering information.  Believe me friends – WE CAN ALL MAKE A DIFFERENCE!

Next meet up will be Wednesday, March 4, 2015 – mark your calendars!

    Great post. We have all been collecting things for it. Or rather giving things for it. 😀

    bro to took bag the garbage cans, is really nice. imagine you come home, thinking you have to take back that cans, before you can jump in your warm bathtub… and you see that someone did that for you…. oh boy, that feels really good, right?

      YES it is. We really try to do that with the neighbors here – especially the older ones. It’s a nice gesture that doesn’t seem like a lot but to them it means the world for sure. XOXO – Bacon

    Those were fantastic things to do. I know mom used to like it when the neighbour brought the garbage can back in. Especially when the driveway had ice all over it.

    Really wonderful things to do. I just gave some cat food to a rescue that also feeds feral kitties. I am also planning on using a GC I got to send a gift to my friend who has been there for me when I was down.
