Pay it Forward - Create a Ripple
Why pay it forward?
Acts of kindness build exponentially in a community and because
people believe that one good deed deserves another, “Paying it
forward” can make the world a better place.
Being kind helps you feel in control. By doing a good deed, you're
saying,'Here's something I can do to change the world.’
There is mental health and physiological benefits to both the
recipient and the giver of the kindness.
The card is a visual/physical reminder that people can leave with
the recipient of the kindness and they can then “pay it forward.”
Let’s foster children’s civic engagement in the local community.
By varying the acts of kindness—volunteering at a library one day and
hosting a surprise party for a friend the next, for instance—has been
shown to cause bigger increases in mood than repeating the same act
over and over. So brainstorm creative, unexpected good deeds and
have fun “paying it forward”.
The “pay it forward” movement is not a new concept. According to
Wikipedia, it dates all the way back to 317 BC where it was used as a key
plot concept for a play in ancient Athens. There are small documented
events of the “pay it forward” notion throughout history; however, it became
a widely popular concept after the 2000 movie of the same name, which was
based on the novel by Catherine Ryan Hyde.
