PIF MAY

What will you do with the Pay it Forward challenge this May?   The Winkler Community Foundation and the Morden Area Foundation challenges you to participate in PAY IT FORWARD during the month of May and to help make our communities a better place to live, work and play.   How does it work? Do at least one good deed for someone without asking for anything in return. Instead the recipient should be encouraged to pay it forward to someone else.
