Pay it Forward to those Who Need!

Pay it Forward to those Who Need! 


The world is so full of many ways to Pay it Forward in our daily lives.    We pay it forward to our next generation by recycling.......   We pay it forward to those in line behind us at Costco when we let them go ahead with their one or two items......   We pay it forward by letting someone go ahead of us when waiting in line at a stop sign.....    How about the simple opening of a door for someone with a smile?    

Most of us try at Holiday time to pay it forward by giving charitably to the Red Cross, Cancer, or other similar organizations.  We also try to bring food and toiletry items to charitable organizations such as Hope - where they can distribute them to those in more need than we.  

Just a simple smile and handshake sometimes will turn someone's day around, and make their day more functional for them.  They in turn will help someone else out, (or at least not grump at them!)   I even got a huge smile from my sister when I gave her the shoes that I never could wear (but loved) - brand new!!!!

Pay it Forward



I have always made a point of making sure all of my used clothing, shoes, furniture, etc makes it for another round in someone else's possession.   I assumed that everyone did this same thing, until I was speaking with our garbage man the other day.   What an eye opening conversation!!!    Apparently, the vast majority of we humans just throw our used items straight into the garbage!   A brand new coat might very well be found in the garbage, as well as a brand new toy!   The garbage man said he could start a used items shop if he wanted.....

My sellers are never allowed to just throw away unwanted items.   I have several groups who help the less fortunate - the Battered Women of Bridgeport, the shelters, etc......   These organizations pick up and take things away at your convenience for free!     They are run by volunteers who care.   

Don't forget to Pay it Forward this holiday season!

Dagny:  Those that are needy definitely see the good and the merit in our taking the time to pass on what we can for re-use.  It could be life-saving or life-altering.  But the givers need it too.  Especially now when there are so many "things" that are happening in our daily lives that can be negative.  Givers need the "high" that comes from doing something for someone else.  It makes you feel better and more capable of facing the daily ups and downs.  You just feel better about yourself and stronger.  It's mental and physical benefits are beyond belief.

You write a strong message Dagny ... one that we should all absorb and then act upon ...

Gene - You are so very right about the high gotten from seeing others receive so much when they are desperately in need!

I've been reading lots of blog posts lately about giving and paying it forward surprisingly.  Unsurprisingly, many of the readers (and, sadly, posters) will go no further than reading or writing about giving.   Oh if we all would give just a pittance - how much better would the world be!

Kathy - Giving with no thought of receiving is the best kind!

Emcee - Oh, I think you would be surprised at how many here at Active Rain give so willingly all day every day, so selflessly to others around them in and out of AR!    Just think of how freely everyone shares information!    I know for a fact that many here give a lot all of the time in time to the less fortunate, and money......

I know that you were referring to those who don't, but I always give credit to those who do, and hope it gets contagious!
