Pay it Forward May

April 28, 2014

 

City of Winkler Mayor Martin declares the month of May as Pay it Forward May, a month long initiative by the Winkler Community Foundation encouraging good deeds in the community. Pay-it-forward May encourages citizens to take the initiative and get involved for the betterment of the community, by encouraging stepping out of ones way, and lending a helping hand to others.

Some examples include:

1. Encourage someone who needs it with words, a smile, or maybe a hug.

2. Let someone go in front of you at the supermarket.

3. Buy the next person in line a coffee.

4. Write a letter or an email to someone who made a difference in your life, telling them why.

5. Donate something anonymously to a person in need.

A list of 101 ways to Pay it Forward are listed on Winkler Community Foundation’s website under What we do – Pay It Forward.

Pay it Forward May cards that can be shared when a good deed is done, are available at the Winkler Community Foundation Office and City Hall.

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.
