We celebrated my youngest daughter’s 5th birthday this morning by eating a Sponge Bob cake (No, not hand-made), singing songs and blowing out candles. She was so happy and grateful. Her biggest wish was to get her own pet. Now we have two goats, two dogs, a cat, and a little bunny. She called it “Butterfly –Emilia”. Because the bunny has black spots identical on both sides. By the way we are still waiting to receive my other daughter’s birthday gift; a Kune Kune. What’s a Kune Kune you might ask; it is a miniature pig. Unfortunately the little piglet is not ready to leave home yet. We are slowly becoming farmers. 😉 LOL
So what’s the “Pay It Forward Day” all about?
The “Pay It Forward Day” has been celebrated by more than 500, 000 people in 60 countries around the world. It was founded in 2007 by Blake Beattie in Australia.
By paying a good deed forward not only children learn that they can make a positive difference to other people’s lives. The ripple effect is energising, visible, and motivating. Everyone can make a difference!
Here are a couple of ideas for you:
Return someone else’s shopping trolley to the bay.
Mow the neighbour’s lawn.
Give a homeless person some food vouchers.
Give books you have to others who would beneﬁt from them.
Give up your seat on the bus / train.
Buy someone lunch.
Give your services for free to someone who could use a helping hand.
Give a gift to someone in need.
And couple of ides for your kids:
Write and illustrate a class picture book for children at the local hospital.
Be friendly to someone they would normally ignore.
Help someone with homework or classwork.
Thank you for your support. Together we can change the world – one good deed at a time!
