Pay it Forward #BeBetter52
In 2014, 378 people paid it forward at a Starbucks in Florida. This act was started by one woman who was simply trying to brighten someone’s day. Little did she know it would set off a chain reaction and lead to a profound impact on her community.
We see so much negativity in the world that we forget that the simplest kind gestures can make the biggest of impacts.
This week’s #BeBetter52 challenge is to it pay forward to 3 or more people! This is a great opportunity to make a positive and profound change on the world around you. With each act of kindness, you complete, you will be helping to create a more compassionate society.
