Paying It Forward Through Random Acts of Kindness

Just recently a friend of mine – Dubravka (or Dubs as many people call her) posted on her Facebook wall about a ‘Pay it Forward’ Initiative. As I love doing things like this, I chose to participate so we can focus on bringing more kindness in to the world.


Paying It Forward Through Random Acts of Kindness

So how can you participate?

You can post something like this on your Facebook wall –

To continue to focus on kindness and paying it forward – I’m participating in this ‘Pay it Forward’ initiative: The first five people who comment on this status with “I’m in” will receive a surprise from me at some point during 2015 – anything from a book, a ticket, something home-grown, homemade, a postcard or card, absolutely any surprise! There will be no warning and it will happen when the mood comes over me (the person who is sending the gift) and I find something that I believe would suit you and make you happy. These five people must make the the same offer on their Facebook status. Once my first five have commented “I’m in” I will forward this message to you privately, so that you can copy and paste it, and put it on your status, (don’t share it) so that we can form a web of connection of kindness. Let’s do more nice and loving things in 2015, without any reason other than to make each other smile and show that we think of each other. Here’s to a more enjoyable, friendly, positive and love-filled year …. Much love

If you don’t have Facebook, you can ‘Pay it Forward’ in other ways. For example:

  • write a similar message and share on your Linked-in profile
  • create an image and add it to your instagram account
  • send an e-mail to a group of friends and the first 5 to reply are in
  • text message a group of friends and the first 5 to reply are in
  • donate to 5 people on Kiva
  • pay for a strangers tea or coffee the next time you purchase one (then repeat 5 times during the year)
  • participate in giving to five charities that you know need support.

Basically your imagination is the limit.
