Pay It Forward

Postby North Idaho Patriot » Wed Sep 15, 2010 10:20 pm

Have you done a good deed for someone? Print these pay-it-forward bucks and give them one. Have them pay the good deed forward to someone else. In this type of economy inflation is a good thing! Make copies and use them. When you help someone, or if you are helped by someone and received one of these bucks, tell us your story and we will post about it. Email your stories to info@AmericanPreppersNetwork.com

Hmmm..... I'm thinking this is a GREAT idea for our kids! Going to print them on some light green paper I have (so they don't get lost in all the white paper stuff we've got) and give some to our daughter, in college, as well! :thumbsup: -k

This is an alternative currency I can get behind. Great idea!

I like the mental wavelenghts here, we all could use some of these thoughts, and i like the hard copy rules that go with the thought. Thanks ,Vernie

One thing in hindsight... I don't like the whole obligated to pay your debt sentence. It detracts from the idea of giving of yourself freely without expecting anything in return. Because by that sentence being there, you are expecting them to pay it forward. Perhaps it could be worded differently?

I see your point, but that was actually intended to be a bit of humor added to it, while at the same time it isn't a "gift" it is actually intended as a loan for someone to pay forward rather than pay back. The difference between "gifts" and "loans" is that too many people in this world have had things handed to them freely without any obligation to "pay back" or even to "pay forward" and they have come to take it for granted and actually "expect" those gifts...example, welfare and socialism. In a way it actually teaches self-reliance by teaching that nothing is free. When you know that nothing is free, you are more apt to work harder to provide for yourself rather than rely on others. The whole point in having this little reminder that they carry around in their wallet is that hopefully people realize that nothing is "free", somebody had to pay for, or work for, whatever it was that was done to help them. Having said all this, it doesn't obligate someone to "pay forward" a deed of equal monetary value, just any deed that they are capable of doing when they see someone in need. An extreme example would be a wealthy person helping out a poor person by purchasing them a car so that they are able to make it to work to support their family, then one day that poor person seeing a family stranded on the side of the road in the middle of winter and pulling over to give them a ride. Rather than helping one person by purchasing that car, the wealthy person was able to help many people. The pay-it-forward concept has the potential to work infinitely.

Hi,
I just joined you all, oh, maybe 10 minutes ago. I admire the creativity in the 'Pay It Forward' bucks! :clap: I've already copied several pages of them and they're ready to print. We are starting a 'Christian Coffee house' in our small college town and I'm going to stack these on the tables where the napkins usually go. With 3 colleges here, I'm praying that this will spread like wildfire. I love the idea that our kids NEED to be re-taught that doing a kind act is something that we should all do without having to be prompted. It should come natural as it use to be in days gone by. Thank you for this great idea. And actually, the way the economy is going, they will probably hold more value then our dollar if things keep going the way they have been. Again thank you and God Bless!

Good idea. I have always told anyone I assisted, to just help someone else down the road. But this gives a hold-in-their-hand tangible item to remind them.
