Pay it forward UK
The Pay It Forward movement has a new home in the UK
Have you ever seen the film 'Pay it Forward'? I was surprised how many people hadn't when I started to talk about it. It is basically about how one good deed deserves another. But rather than returning the good deed to the same person, you suggest they do a good deed for someone else. Therefore you 'Pay it Forward'.
When I described how I'd done such a deed and tweeted about it. I was amazed and extremely honoured to get a message from Charley Johnson www.pifexperience.org - President of the international Pay It Forward Foundation, offering me the opportunity to represent ‘Pay it Forward’ in the UK.
Several years ago, Charley created a pay it forward bracelet to serve as a physical reminder to do good, and also to pass on when you carry out acts of kindness. Wearing the bracelet reminds you to be kind to others at every opportunity and then when you are, you remove the bracelet and give it to the person you have just carried out the act of kindness for. In this way, the reminder is passed on and kindness spreads.
We now have stocks of bracelets but would like to buy more and raise awareness of this cause. The only way we could get them at a reasonable price each is to buy 5,000. For that we used our own money. Buy yours here ...
If you want to buy them from us (all profits go to buying more bracelets and raising awareness) you can do so in my online shop. We want to always have stocks so we will replace any that are sold. It's what we would have wanted when we first became interested in Pay It Forward. If you need any help just ask.
Let's get 'pay it forward' rippling out across the UK. Just make one kind gesture and watch the ripple grow!
