Do you pay it forward?

Just wondering if you girls do nice things for people just because. For instance, once in a while Ill go to the local coffee drive thru and Ill pay for the coffee of the car behind me. That usually starts a long line of people paying it forward for the people behind them.

Sometimes if im walking by and notice a parking meter out of money I slip some change in, so they dont get a ticket.

Wondering if anyone has other suggestions on what we can do to make the world a better place?

 I did that at the 99 cent store last week and then at the market about two weeks ago there was a group of kids asking for change to buy milk I said I would buy milk another lady heard me and got them bread and before you knew it more came forward and the kids went away with a bag of food. I am not sure if homeless or what but I felt better after

I love to help people with things. I really enjoy doing it.

I let people get ahead of me in line if I'm not in a hurry. Because I am a SAHM, I don't always have a lot to do during the day, so I let other people cash out so they can get on to whatever else they need to do.

I pass on my Children's Place coupons to the person in front of behind me in line because you can re-use the coupon until the end date. People seem very thankful for that because 15 or 20% off adds up

I think you ladies are awesome! We dont have much to share right now but we were recently having a yardsale and There were a few families who came with little ones who really didn't have the money to get them what they needed so they would pick out a few of the clothes my boys had outgrown and I'd try to help them by giving them a few extras or digging for a pack of unopened socks or toys and stuff that I knew they could use or like and give it to them. I know it's not much but it made me feel better to even be able to do that =)

I do. I've been fortunate enough to receive help from others since I am struggling and whenever I have something to spare, I pass it on. I believe in helping others before helping myself...sometimes it's not always a good thing, but it still makes me feel good to know I helped.

I try to pay it forward as much as I can...

It seems that most people around here are old farmers.. They refuse to have you help even if they are just a dollar off of having enough at the store.

So I do what I can when I can. I feel like the world needs our help to pay it foward!!

It's great to read that all of you are paying it forward to.

I teach in a low-income school district so I'm usually paying it forward through someone in my class. They always need something and I can't help but get it for them when I see a need. The little boy with no pajamas for pajama day. A new bookbag. Shoes. A belt. I've been taking in different electronic stuff to the video game place. Hopefully, by Christmas I'll have enough credit to get him some kind of video game system.

The only thing I can think of is letting people go before me in line...
