PIF MAY

April 20, 2018

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. For example, is there someone in your life who could use a visitor? Together, the difference we can make in our community is phenomenal.

 

How can you get involved?

 

 

THE VISION OF PAY IT FORWARD

Even though we support demonstrating pay it forward initiatives every day, the Winkler Community Foundation has chosen one month to encourage the community to focus on Pay it Forward initiatives; to work together to make our community strong and vibrant. We hope that people show kindness and, then hopefully they will pay that thoughtfulness forward. By doing so, our communities becomes stronger!

 

SHARE THE KINDESS ON SOCIAL MEDIA

We hope to inspire others through the stories of Pay it Forward kindness taking place.

Kindness is contagious – share what you do, what you see and how you have been impacted through Pay it Forward acts of kindness on social media. Remember to hashtag – #PIFMAY

Follow us on Facebook at Winkler Community Foundation, Instagram account – payitforwardmay; or email us at myra@winklercommunityfoundation.com . Check out our website at http://winklercommunityfoundation.com/what-we-do/pay-it-forward-may/

 

PIF Kindness Mobile

Look for the PIF May Kindness Mobile, a van that will be moving throughout the community spreading kindness over the month of May. The Kindness Mobile is a reminder to Pay it Forward and to help the community thrive.

 

Together, let’s impact our community this MAY.

Pay It Forward May

  Pay it Forward is something we can and should be doing all year round. The Winkler Community Foundation and Morden Area Foundation has chosen one month to be more active in our efforts – not because we have to, but because we want to. Not because we’ve experienced kindness from others, but because we want to work together to make our community strong and vibrant. Pay it Forward. Inspire others. Impact our Community.
