The Power of Paying it Forward.

According to Wikipedia, the term Paying it Forward “is an expression for describing the beneficiary of a good deed repaying the kindness to others rather than paying it back to the original benefactor.”

It is a term that can be used in many different situations; on social media you may have seen videos of people paying for other people’s shopping or paying their bill in a restaurant and simply saying “pay it forward”.

The beauty of paying it forward lies in its simplicity. It doesn’t require grand gestures or significant resources. It can be a simple act of kindness: holding the door open for someone (although you would like to think that this is something everyone should do), offer a helping hand to someone in need.

The hope is that these simple acts will create a ripple effect- when someone experiences an act of kindness, they are often inspired to pass it on to others. This will create a society where kindness is prevalent.

Charities rely heavily on kindness and people’s desire to help others less fortunate than themselves. For many, this is a very personal choice, often people support those charities whose support they themselves have needed or perhaps a friend/family member. By supporting the charity, they are paying it forward by helping that charity provide support for another person in need.

How will you choose to Pay it Forward in 2024?

 Perhaps choosing to donate to a Charity regularly through your pay? Or supporting a Charity through volunteering?

With the end of the financial year fast approaching, some of us are fortunate enough to receive bonuses to show appreciation for our hard work throughout the year. Perhaps you would consider donating a portion of this bonus to a Charity?
