Yesterday, I shared how somebody unexpectedly decided to pay it forward to me while I was contemplating paying it forward to someone else. It was an awesome experience! Now, here’s an opportunity for you to Pay It Forward BIG TIME through the Coca Cola Pay It Forward campaign! Secondly, learn how you can win a $100 AMEX card to help you directly Pay It Forward, like I did at Starbucks, with your family!

You Turn for Your Story
Now, I want to encourage each of you to Pay It Forward by nominating a young person in your life! How AWESOME will that person feel to know you nominated then, and imagine if they are one of the winners!? Secondly, find time to do a kind gesture to a stranger or an unexpecting friend. It might be something special for your child’s teacher or soccer coach. Go out of your way and help an deserving individual for no specific reason. To support you in your Pay It Forward activities I will give one lucky reader a $100 AMEX gift card! You can use that gift card as you wish. Maybe you’ll buy a stranger a coffee or the doctor’s office lunch or give the whole card to a person in need. The decision is yours. I do encourage you to get your kids involved. It is a perfect opportunity for them to experience kindness and thoughtfulness. Giveaway entry at the end of post!
