Pay It Forward May – 2023

The Purpose

Our purpose is simple! One act of kindness has the strength and power to create a long lasting effect in our community. Kindness is simply a positive action that leaves someone in a better situation than before. It takes away the focus from ourselves and it sparks generosity and gratitude in others. When we look beyond our own needs and help someone else, we better our community in more ways than one.

Pay It Forward May is important to the health and well-being of our community by creating a better place to live, work and play in. So help us work together to inspire others and create a long lasting impact with kindness.


Once again, this MAY, the Winkler Community Foundation and Morden Area Foundation are encouraging the community – businesses, charities, youth groups, church groups, friend groups, and individuals – look for a way to show kindness to someone without expecting anything in return.
