Pay It Forward Day

Thursday April 29, 2010 - Pay It Forward Day

Please join me on Thursday and lets create a ripple effect that will last all year.....until 2011 when we can do it all again.......like Ground Hog Day!

One good deed might not seem like much, but if everyone did something good for someone else then the cycle of generosity and kindness can spark us to become better people.

Operating on the premise that we all have it in our power to help another, one individual truly can change the world.

A day of giving....how great is that! And kindness is contagious!


"They say don’t believe your own hype, but if you don’t why would anyone else? To be great you have to believe you can do great things."
~~ Charley Johnson

oh oh oh! What do you think all the hats were that I mailed out? sorry I didn't send one to you -you expressed no interest)

paying it forward ;DDD

Also, not to brag about our neighborhood, but that's all we do when it comes to watching each other's kids - we pay it forward. I'll watch your kids, you watch Suzie's, she'll watch so-and-so's, and so-and-so will be available (coincidentally) to babysit my kids when I need it.
I must say - it works.

well I just printed and mailed some 4 year old photos of a vacation we took together, to my sister in California as a total surprise. Does that count? (-:
