Over the past few years, the idea of passing it along, sharing the love, or paying it forward has taken hold. The concept is merely doing something good for someone else without wanting or expecting anything in return. Whether the act is a charity donation or a sincere compliment, the point is to spread kindness.

How can you pass it along _ (2)

  1. 1. HOW CAN YOU "PASS IT ALONG"? By Ephraim Vashovsky
  2. 2. Over the pastfew years, the idea of passing italong, sharing the love, or paying itforward has takenhold. The conceptis merely doing something good for someone else withoutwanting or expecting anything inreturn. Whether the actis a charity donationor a sincere compliment, the pointis to spread kindness.  This movement has gained so much traction that it even has its own day (April 28th is International Pay It Forward Day) and a website. The Pay It Forward Day website aims to inspire more than 10 million acts of kindness around the world, and believes that “small acts, when multiplied by millions of people, can change the world for the better.”
  3. 3. Paying it forward can help create a ripple effect of generosity and thoughtful behavior to friends, families, neighbors, and strangers, and it will make you feel good too. Here are some ways you can “pass it along” daily:
  4. 4. LISTEN. One of the fundamental parts of being human is the want, and need, for human connection. Many people feel isolated and alone, and a simple act of listening to a story or sharing a conversation can mean the world to them. Be proactive and let people in your life know you are always there if they need to talk. Outside of families and friends, you can make a significant impact by volunteering at nursing homes and hospices. Oftentimes, these organizations have programs that match volunteers with people who have little to no visitors. 
  5. 5. Sharing sincere compliments or praise can be a very tiny way to brighten someone’s day. Every day we all strive to do our best and look our best, and sometimes we need to hear that we are noticed or that those things are appreciated. Keep an eye out for opportunities throughout your day to compliment others. It is as easy as telling a person on the sidewalk that their outfit is stylish or a parent in line that they are doing an excellent job. The key is to mean it. Be Sincere. 
  6. 6. PAY IT FORWARD CARDS. This is a great strategy for creating a more substantial ripple effect. You create “pass it along” cards that explain the concept and encourages others to continue the process. If you happen to put more coins in the parking meter, slip the card on the windshield for them to find. The receiver will then recognize the act of kindness and will be more likely to then spread the love further. 
  7. 7. THIS IS A GREAT OPTION FOR PEOPLE WHO WANT TO GET THEIR CHILDREN INVOLVED. START BY CHOOSING WHO YOU WANT TO MAKE CARE PACKAGES FOR. HOMELESS? DEPLOYED SOLDIERS? THE ELDERLY? THEN MAKE A LIST OF POSSIBLE PACKAGE CONTENTS. A HANDMADE CARD IS ALWAYS A GREAT CHOICE WHEN CHILDREN ARE INVOLVED. ONCE THE ITEMS HAVE BEEN PURCHASED AND BAGGED, GET THEM OUT THERE. IF YOU ARE DELIVERING TO THE HOMELESS OR ELDERLY, ENLIST YOUR CHILDREN FOR HELP. IT WILL BE AN EXPERIENCE THEY WON’T FORGET! CARE PACKAGE
