Have you ever been line at a fast food place or at Starbucks and when you pull up to the window to order, the person working there informs you that the car that has previously been in front of you has paid for your order? Isn’t that an awesome feeling? Both because you didn’t have to pay for your order, but also because it’s just such a nice thing to do for someone, you can’t help but think fondly of that stranger that just paid you a kindness. Literally.
Well, Ashley of The Shine Project is at it again! She has come up with something amazing yet again! Let me let her tell you all about it…
Pass It Forward was designed to get people to do little things, everyday, that makes an impact on the community around them. Pass it Forward is designed around a card (read card that I’ve attached now so you understand). Each card is given a unique ID number. Lets say we’re at McDonalds, and I decide to pay for the person behind me in the drive through. I’d give the cashier the card, and tell them to pass it along to the next car when the give them the food that has been paid for. I then go home and log into the website that was on the card, and find my unique ID number. I log into it, and add my information… My first name, city, and a description of what I did….
Let’s say the person behind me was you, you would pass it forward to someone else, and then would go home and do the same thing. From the very beginning, you will be able to track where your card goes, and how many people you affect just by doing one simple act of kindness.
I AM SO EXCITED. This project had the potential of working small miracles in the lives of those we pass, and we will then be able to see how far one simple act can go. I want to spread the shine community into something that is in every city, so that we can get more projects done and change more lives… I have strongly felt like this is a big way that will get accomplished.
Who’s excited about this? And who’s excited about the change Ashley’s been bringing to communities all around Arizona, California and this weekend in Texas! She’s amazing! Who’s excited to join the Pay It Forward campaign? Are you ready to change lives? Because a small act can have a HUGE impact on someone! You never know if that lunch you bought them would have taken the last few dollars they had in their wallet, or if they were having a really bad day and that free cup of Chai at Starbucks was something that lifted their spirits and made their day that much better. This is pretty big you guys. What a great idea Ashley!! Let’s get started!!!!
