pay it forward

i'm seeing pay if forward all over facebook and twitter today.  what a cool thing to go viral.  i hope it does. i have no idea who david mundo is but apparently, he started this annual pay it forward day on december 1st.  so i googled "pay it forward day' and found that there's an official pay it forward day on april 28th...but who cares.  i'm in for paying it forward on december 1st and doing my part to help it go viral.

this is what it's all about...

Pay It Forward Day December 1st, 2010

‘Tis the Season! A random act of kindness goes a long way so…


What can you do? On December 1st... • Pay for someone’s cup of coffee… • Buy someone some groceries… • Get the next person’s gas… • Help someone out… • Donate something… • Be creative!

When you do something for someone there’s a good chance they’ll do something for someone else. If not, at least you’ve done a good deed for someone.

So on December 1st share some kindness and spread some joy! It can be as little as a few dollars or as much as you want. No one needs to know!

are you in? hope so!!

if you do participate, i'd love to know what your random act of kindness was; please share in the comments.  i'll ETA mine later today.  hmmm...maybe i'll go through the starbucks drive-thru simply to purchase the next person's cup of coffee.

ETA: after my workout this morning, i stopped at xtreme juice for a shot of wheat grass and a smoothie.  got my stuff. walked out. and then back in...thinking it was the perfect place to pay it forward.  purchased the next person's smoothie and asked the girl to just tell the person that it was simply a random act of kindness.  :-))
