Have you ever had someone encourage, support, or show you kindness in a moment when you desperately needed it?
Do you remember how it felt and what it did for your spirit?
We hope that everyone has had that feeling and can identify with how it feels to be encouraged when things are hard for us. Most likely, everyone that is reading this has experienced times in their lives that were very challenging. It’s something that we can all identify with. Unfortunately, challenging times are on the rise while kindness, caring, and encouragement seem to be in short supply.
With your help, we want to change this with the Pay It Forward Project.
We understand that some people struggle with expressing emotion and it can feel awkward. But we all know how it feels to have someone be kind to us, kindness causes a chain reaction, it makes us want to pay it forward. All it takes is one person to get it started.
You know the saying "be the change you want to see in the world"? That quote isn't just about change, and it isn't just about one person being able to change their world. It’s about a movement that can be started from one person acting selflessly and with intention. That’s what good leaders do.
That’s why we started the Pay It Forward Project. We thought how can we help make the world a better place? Well, what better way to teach kindness than to show it? So with each training we do for our clients, we plan to give them each a set of our Pay It Forward Project cards, all which have inspiring messages on them, and encourage them to share them with people they see struggling with the weight of the moment.
See someone having a bad day? You don’t know them and striking up a conversation in that moment might be a challenge, much less coming up with the right words to say. Just choose one of your cards and just give it to them. No explanation needed. You’ll be giving them kindness and encouragement in a moment that is needed, and since it says “Pay It Forward Project” on one side, they’ll know what they should do with it as well.
If you found your way here because someone made your day better with a card and you wanted to know more, please share what it meant to you here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/equsapayitforward

Together, We’re Better.
Instructions are simple: Purchase cards, then extend kindness intentionally by looking for people who could use a little kindness and encouragement, choose a card, and Pay It Forward.
