Years ago, I designed a small batch of these pay it forward cards and passed them out anytime I paid for the coffee of the person in line behind me. I started doing that because doing something nice for someone made me feel better on down days, but I also wanted people to pass the good they received on to someone else - to not only make someone else’s day, but hopefully theirs if they were having a rough one. It’s easy to be appreciative when the person in front of you pays for your coffee order, but it’s not as easy to remember to pay it forward when the coffee is gone and you are once again caught up in the hustle and bustle of life. These pay it forward cards are a fun way to remind others that a small gesture can make someone’s day and encourage them to pass the kindness along to someone else.
You may be doing something small, but small acts can have a ripple effect.
