PIF May – A Success

June 9, 2016

“Kindness is contagious. And for the last month Morden and Winkler was spreading the love as part of Pay It Forward Month. Organized by the Winkler Community Foundation (WCF) and the Morden Area Foundation (MAF), residents across the two cities were encouraged to brighten someone’s day.” – Steven Sukkau, Pembina Valley Online

 

The Winkler Community Foundation and the Morden Area Foundation would like to THANK everyone that participated in this year’s Pay it Forward May initiative. It was great to hear and see the variety of ways people paid it forward. From businesses supplying coffee break for another business and students, to supplying groceries to a neighbour, buying coffee and ice cream for a stranger behind them, mowing the neighbours lawn, bringing baking to the elderly and playing games, planting gardens. The list goes on. Each act of kindness has an impact – on the recipient, on the person paying it forward, and on those that happen to observe. You never know the impact your act of kindness may have. Pay it Forward and continue to impact our community.

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.
