Events: Official Pay It Forward Day 2012
In hindsight, it seems so obvious, but back in 2000 when Catherine Ryan Hyde published a simple yet powerful novel called, Pay It Forward, no one, least of all her, could have anticipated the impact the story would have. Flash forward a dozen years, and the term “pay it forward” has become a staple in the global lexicon of volunteerism, giving and living in general.
Tomorrow, April 26th, is Official Pay It Forward Day, sponsored by the Pay It Forward International of which Catherine Ryan Hyde is one of the founding members. Here in the Boom Boom! Room we couldn’t be more excited about a whole day dedicated to paying forward.
Of course, every day has the potential to be Pay It Forward Day, and still, we love the notion of an extra special day to call attention to this growing concept and spreading the word. The more the merrier…the more the kinder!
So, take a moment tomorrow (or two or ten!) to get your Boom Boom! on and pay forward an act of kindness that has been shown you. And, if you’re feeling inspired the next day, do it again!
Happy Pay It Forward Day!
