Today we are joining with our friend Ashley over at the Shine Project to help her launch PASS IT FORWARD!!! Basically to spread some SHINE to your community!
Pass It Forward was designed to get people to do little things, everyday, that will make an impact on the community around them. So here’s the deal, she designed a card that is to be given to someone in your local community as you show them an act of kindness. Each card is given a unique ID number, so that when someone receives this card they can log into the website using that card to see where the card has traveled and how it has blessed other people along the way. The back of the card looks like this . . .
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.
Isn’t that a great idea! Let’s help Ashley spread the SHINE in our community! Are you guys brainstorming ideas yet of ways you could be sharing the Pass It Forward cards?! Next week you will see what each of us Junk in the Trunkers did with our Pass It Forward cards!
And be sure to check out Ashley’s blog for all the info to get your hands on your own Pass It Forward cards so you too can start spreading some SHINE!
