Pay it Forward is?

PayItForward_AaronCampanella

A Global Philanthropic Revolution…Pay It Forward is a social movement based on the idea of performing random acts of kindness without the expectation that people owe us something in return, we perform the favor with the sole motive of being a blessing in someone’s life with the hope that this spirit of unconditional giving will be passed on and multiplied.  WE can change the world with Kindness.

Being a nurse for over 20 years I began to be disheartened with the lack of care people had for one another. Teaching a caring curriculum, yet noting we don’t care about each other. Oxymoron? Hypocritical? Ghandi said, “My life is a message.” Not wanting to sit back in the apathy bleachers with the majority I decided if you change nothing, nothing will change, so I jumped on the Pay It Forward roller coaster to make sure my life could be a message of hope, faith and caring in humanity again.

There are no profound study results for this movement, just the belief in the power of one person doing random acts of kindness to others, with incredible exponential growth potential. Mother Theresa did say if you can’t feed 100, start with one…this is our movement…we CAN change the world one good deed at a time.

You may ask yourself, how do I get involved? It’s simple…start being intentionally kind to others…the movement asks that you start with 3 people. Instead of expecting something back in return for your kindness ask them to Pay It Forward. It’s simple, it’s pure and doesn’t have to cost a cent. Get involved because what the world needs is simply more kindness… rachel                         • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • •   This Pay It Foward clip was produced by Bailey Papp and Mary-Rose Skelly, Broadcasting Television and Communications Media program at Mohawk College:   Here is a recent INDI 101.5 FM radio interview (Feb.10) with Catherine Ryan Hyde, author of the National Best Seller, “Pay It Forward,” Jamie Smith, INDI program manager and rachel.

Our First, Pay It Forward Day, March 15, 2012 at Mohawk College was about connecting with people through random acts of kindness.  PIF stations were set up at all Mohawk College campuses and the IAHS to obtain bracelets, PIF cards, exchanging PIF experiences for artwork from our very own graphic design students and collecting items needed for Living Rock, an organization that ministers to street involved youth in Hamilton (www.livingrock.ca).
