PAY IT FORWARD Experience

Holland, MI

As a fan of the Oprah Winfrey Show's "paying it forward", I decided that I wanted to add a little cheer to some of your residents...Enclosed is a check for $250 that I hope you can find 10 residents that a small gift of $25.00 each might help them to do something that might brighten their day. If there is someone unemployed, down on their luck, or someone that just wishes they had an extra $10.00 for a good book, a good pair of socks or stockings, or maybe just a sandwich from a deli and not to have to bring their lunch for one day because they are trying to save a little in this bad economic time, please pass this mall give along to them. Wishing your town continued blessings,

Ramona L. Scott

16646 Pine View Ct. Wow! I was on the phone talking to an HR consultant about two different positions I have been offered. It's been a rough few months as I resigned a position and have been searching for a new one, trying to make sure it is the right fit. I was pleasantly surprised by the doorbell ringing (which I couldn't answer, unfortunately, being on the phone), and my son found a plate of cookies and the card. What a nice surprise, and it came at a great time! Thank you, whomever left us the goodies and performed the nice random act of kindness!

Holland Michigan I would like to say, that the PIF program is a Great way to show the example of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ. He showed us the Truth and the Way to Heaven. To Love One Another as we Love ourselve and the same as we Love our God with all our Heart, Soul, Mind and Strength. God sent his son to save us and be our servant, the least we can do is share the example and Pay It Forward. I committ to shovel or snowblow my neighbors sidewalk and always let those with fewer items go ahead in grocery line. I have even taken a young man I mentor to the movies and dinner. God has blessed me with the time and ability to do these acts of kindness and I pray that the PIF experience will continue for many individuals.

Holland, Michigan The snow plow had come by my house and left a huge, hard heavy drift in my driveway. I had to park on the street. I was struggling to shovel it away and my beautiful neighbor walked over with his snowblower and finished it for me. It was an amazing gesture and certainly made my day. Today I shoveled a car out of my work parking lot that has been stuck for a week and gave the owner the card that my neighbor so generously gave me.

Hamilton Last Wednesday (2-9-11) a complete stranger approached me and my 3 children at the Holland Aldi with a gift of $10! Little did he know, that week I only had a $20 budget for the "necessities" and his $10 donation expanded my grocery list by quite a bit! He wished us a blessed day and I pray he and his family are equally blessed! I can't wait to make someone elses day! Thank you stranger!

Philadelphia, PA My 5th grade class has been studying character traits. When I heard about this idea, I thought it would tie into the traits of generosity and compassion perfectly! I told students about PIF and asked if anyone was interested in getting a card. All their hands shot into the air. This week, I had them write down what they did to "pay it forward". Here's some of what they did: -made breakfast for dad without being asked -helped a 93-year-old woman to seat without being asked -helped a blind woman get onto a bus -helped mom carry in groceries; helped neighbors carry out a big trash bag -mom took friend out for dinner -gave a man gas money -helped mom clean up her shop and cleaned own room without being asked -helped get some groceries for neighbors -helped brother clean room -went and bought grandmom some milk

Holland We had no clue about the Pay it Forward. So here I was at Crown not in a very good mood, Felt rushed, just one of those days where things did not settle right, Sitting waiting for my car to finish getting an oil change done. Got called because my car was finished, Lady at the checkout, Stated there was a Pay it forward for me, not understanding, I had many questions, the lady was extremely nice, she took time to explain everything, a Pay it forward for $25 on my oil change and I had a $5 coupon which made my visit free. I was speechless, My complete mood changed , What a wonderful act of kindness someone did for us, My husband and I are so excited to pick a place and return that favor to someone else. It is amazing how my mood changed from bad to wonderful, Thank you for allowing use to experience the pay it forward. We are going to start a card of our own as well. No words will ever express what a random act of kindness can make someone feel.

I responded, "Yes, but I'm not sure how much cash I have." We went anyways, and ordered hoping together we would have enough to get a Strawberries & Crème Frap as well as a Iced Carmel Macchiato. When I pulled up to the window I was told "Your bill has already been taken care of. Here's a card for you though." On it, PAY IT FORWARD! Thank you, for making our day.

holland This evening my husband and I decided to take our three small children to IHOP for dinner. We had a great time and a great meal. This is something we don't do often so it was great to get out with the family. As we went to pay we were giving this card. What an amazing feeling we had knowing someone was so generous and kind to us. I am looking forward to giving this joy to someone else. God bless!

Holland, MI The Holland Rescue Mission was recipients of the donated funds from Ramona Scott to share with individuals in Holland. The Family Hope Ministry Center has given the $25 shared with us to the ladies in our Discipleship Program to enjoy a shopping trip at the WAR Chest Boutique located at 119 Courtland Street in Rockford. The WAR Chest Boutique is a non-profit store-front operated by Women At Risk, International, giving people a permanent location to shop the jewelry and fine gifts made by the precious rescued and at-risk women who flow through their programs. Thus, with Mrs. Scott's generous gift, we were able to create a fun evening for some of the homeless women residing at the Holland Rescue Mission, as well as to provide funding to women rescued from human trafficking. Thank you for "Paying It Forward" and for letting us be a part of it.

Holland, MI I work at Michigan Commerce Bank and for the past few months we have had the opportunity to wear jeans on Fridays for a donation to different causes each month. This month we decided that instead of a donation to charity we would use the "Pay It Forward" campaign that the city has started. If we wear jeans we get a card to do random acts of kindness to others around us. My card is going to be used to help out a friend who has been going through a very hard time. She needed an oil change in her van but couldn't pay for it. My son checked her oil and filled it for her. I will now use my Pay It Forward card to get her a real oil change. You don't have to spend any money, my son did his own pay it forward just by helping her out whenever she needs it. Keep it going Holland and we will eventually effect the world!

Grand Rapids MI My daughter and I tried to arrange a group trip with some of her fellow college students to the Bodies Revealed exhibit at the GR Public Museum. I purchased 4 student tickets plus my adult ticket thinking we would have a carful of gals going. It turned out that the 10:00 showing that I reserved just didn't work out for most of them. I ended up with 2 extra tickets that, rather than trying to sell at the door myself, I left them with the ticket sales desk instructing them to give them to the next couple of students that needed to purchase tickets. I hope the recipients enjoyed the exhibit as much as I did - especially with the extra benefit of "free" admission.

our home in Holland A young neighbor named Tiffany knocked on our door and said she knew that we had a young son and thought he might like some toys and she wanted to pay it forward by giving us a few items for him. When my husband went to the door I knew she had come by last year when we first moved in a brought us a tray of cookies. Now she was giving us $10 with a note that said to Pay it Forward and a lovely hand written card and a few toys for our 3 1/2 year old son. I have to say that since we moved to Holland 16 months ago I have had at least one to two dozen strangers/neighbors in my local area come by and bring items to our family and it has been a real blessing. I want to thank Tiffany for reminding us that we are lucky to live in such a great community and even though my husband and I are still unemployed and hope to find jobs here soon, we are blessed more than most and grateful for the reminder from Tiffany about Paying it Forward to some other person in the community who may need their spirits lifted or could use a break by us doing a random act of kindness for them. So we are ready to Pay it Forward and I thank this town for all the great people who have reached out to us. Sincerely, Mustapha, Erin and Zachary Feryate

Holland MI A young, beautiful new social worker spends huge amounts of time and energy trying to make sure everyone else' life is in order. She shares of her time, talent and treasures. However, she is dealing with her own financial struggles. We gave her a $50 gas card to try to help her and encourage her great efforts.

South of Nashville TN A coworker and I were at a Cracker Barrel restaurant, unexpectantly on our way home. We had been attending a trade show when she inexplicably fainted in the exhibit hall the day before. After a trip to the ER, she was 'checked and found OK' in military maintenance parlance. the next day she was still weak so we headed home to have her checked out by her family Doc - our trip a washout. When the waitress presented us with the Pay it Forward card we were both heartened by the sincerity of the gesture. Our dour mood was significantly improved for the remainder of our trip. I tip my hat in thanks and will use the card myself - very soon!

Sturgis Michigan We attended the Holland Mchigan Tulip Festival. It was a beautiful day. We bought 2 tickets to ride the trolly and learn more about the history of Holland. While sitting in the trolly and waiting for the trolly to leave we noticed that one of our tickets said that we were a winner. A lady came on the trolly from a Credit union and asked if anyone had a ticket that said it was a winner. We said that we had the ticket. She then gave us a fleece blanket.She also said there was a card that went with it. The pay it forward card. It was nice to recieve the card and we plan to pay it forward. We had a real nice day in Holland Michigan.

Several weeks later, a few of my students came in during lunch to organize my crayons, markers, and colored pencils... and explained to me that they were looking for ways to help other people. How exciting to see the next generation starting to "pay it forward"!!! GO WO!

Holland As I was mowing my neighbor's lawn, I saw a green minivan stop in the road. An older couple had ran out of gas in front of the house. They asked me if I had any gasoline and, without even thinking, I ran home, grabbed my last container of gasoline, brought it over, and emptied it into their tank. They tanked me and wanted to pay for the gasoline I ave them, but I turned it down about 5 times (they kept pleading). I didn't need the money, I just wanted to help. :D

Freedom Village, Holland Acvitities directors Marcia and her cohort Theresa planned a fun "pay it forward" trip for 32 of us filling the Freedom Village bus. We first sang You are My Sunshine & delivered single gerbera daisy flowers to all at the Secretary of State's office . Then we visited the new Simpatico free trade coffee business on Lincoln Ave. We bought some coffee for ourselves and then we made two stops along the byways to give coffee to complete strangers, one man mowing his field and a security officer in Saugatuck later. Then we shopped with $2 each given us at a Dollar Store and hardware for items listed to donate....at our next stop at the Children's Museum in Fennville. A fabulous Lunch followed at the Fennville Railroad Station dining coach filled with historic memorabilia and music. In Saugatuck we were treated to our choice of gelato flavors. Back in Holland we stopped at the post office and went in to share our supply of Hershey chocolate "hugs" with patrons and staff. With some left we approached those on the street outside filling everyone with laughter. Last stop was the farmers market locale on 8th St. where we used chalk art to display happy notes and surprise today's patrons. What a hoot it all was! Why we're happy to live at FV.

I then randomly handed them out to people shopping at Aldi, Goodwill, Mel Trotter Mission Store, etc. I gave these out to people hoping that the people shopping at these type of stores either could use the extra money or that they were people who were being budget conscience with their money. Either way, I hope that everyone has a most wonderful and blessed New Year!

Whitehall Several years ago my child's 4th grade teacher began a little project with some of his kids after seeing an elderly woman who lives near the school, shoveling her driveway. A selected group of kids (who expressed sincere interest and volunteered) go out with the teacher during what would normally be their recess and shovel this woman's driveway, working in pairs, so they don't get too tired. My child said that the teacher bought another shovel this year because he had more students volunteer than he normally does. In this super fast technotronic age of me, me, me and want, want, want, I think it's outstading he is putting on the brakes, slowing things down a bit and teaching them a life lesson on compassion and caring for others, and a sense of selflessness. Though it's a small token of appreciation, I wanted to show our gratitude and pay his generosity forward. He was given a coupon for food at a local eatery. And if you're reading this, teacher of my child, we thank you again! :D

Holland We were eating at Windmill Restaurant as a family before taking the kids back to college for the semester. As we were finishing, the waitress told us that our meal had been paid for and gave us the card. My husband had already been thinking of paying for the person at the next table, so we put money to cover his bill on his table with the card. We are not from Holland and didn't know anything about Pay It Forward, but it was an encouraging experience for us.

Waterloo, Iowa I am a big fan of Natalie Portman. I read a few interviews where she talked about novelist Nicole Krauss, and mentioned Krauss' husband Jonathan Safran Foer as one of her favorite authors. While collecting books from the two authors, I received The History of Love by Nicole Krauss from an Adva Price (USA: CA)off of Bookmooch.com. In that book is where I found my Pay It Forward card. And here I am. :)

Allendale, MI I was grabbing lunch at Biggby's (on East Beltline, GR), when the woman in line in front of me paid for my order. She was a complete stranger, but the cashier said, "The woman said to 'Have a good day, and Pay it Forward!'" Well, there was nobody in line behind me, unfortunately. Yesterday, though, at the same Biggby, I paid for the lady in line behind me/all her coffees! I asked the cashier how often the PIF actions happen there, and she said, "Oh, all the time! Some days, it goes on for hours!" I love performing random acts of kindness, and actually having it happen to me warms my soul... See, people, you just gotta have faith in humanity :)

Holland My family was out a few weeks ago debating on where to go for dinner after passing Pizza Hut, BK, Arby's and Brann's our 4 year old said she wanted soup and our 2 year old said pizza. So we turned around and went to Pizza Hut. Our girls were getting rambunxious so we decided to get the rest of our meal to go and asked for togo boxes, cups and a bill. She came back and said. "Great news all around, we found a container for the soup, heres your box, and your bill has been taken care of...all I can say is Pay it Forward. My husband and I were in complete shock, we asked who paid for our meal and she just looked to a spot where no one was sitting anymore. It was amazing.I was so thankful because money was a little tight. I kept forgetting to fill this out but now that I have I cant wait to pass it on to someone else....Im thinking a gas card, or, Meijer gift card...hopefully the next person shares thier experience here.

Wild Chef We were just getting ready to pay our bill at Wild Chef when I opened the bill and all I saw was this card. I looked at my husband and said the lady forgot to give us our bill. She came running out and said surprise the other family paid your bill and the card is for you. What is awesome is that my husband had just had surgery and was off of work for 2 weeks to recover. Going out to eat that night was a huge treat. I was so speechless the rest of the night.

Allegan MI Well I received this card a long long time ago, in fact probably a year. I unfortunately was thinking in huge thoughts rather than small things so it took a while for me to follow through. :( I received a $15 gift card to Wal-Mart. It came at an essential time for me. I was having to change my house door locks for the second time in a couple months. I was running out of light bulbs and needed them badly for the outside of my house because me and my children's safety at the time was a big concern. So the gift card was very helpful and exactly what I needed. As it appears by my above statement money was not something I could give back and that's why it's been difficult for me to find something significant to help someone with. But, I finally found something... I met this really great, big-hearted, and caring man. We have become pretty good friends and I had a pretty good idea about all the struggles he's facing in his and his family's life. His brother passed away a couple weeks ago. It was a suicide and therefore unexpected. He had no insurance or extra money. My friend is the family go-to guy and therefore had to take responsibility for everything. From planning the service, to burial, to paying for it all financially. He already has so much going on without this extra work let alone the pain he was going through along side of things. So, I took care of finding a church, Pastor to hold a service, and I planned the memorial luncheon to follow the service. I used his friends as resources so there was no cost for food. The church was given to me and my pastor for free usage because it's a shared church in our denomination. So my friend had a few less things to worry about and a lot less money to spend! I have no doubt in my mind that he appreciated everything we did for him. And I believe he will enjoy paying it forward! Thanks for reading my story. :)

Holland A couple of months ago, I put an ad on Craigslist looking for a cheap or free piano. After some weeks, I got an email from a really kind woman, Laurie. She told me she had a baby grand piano, and asked me if that was something i wad looking for/jnterested in. And she said she was willing to give me the piano for free as long as I promised to love it as much as her and her family did.one of my prayers was answered right here. I had always prayed to God for a baby grand piano, and now he responded that prayer. Her husband was planing to sell the piano so they could get at least some bucks from it, but they ended up deciding to bless someone.... Im truly blessed with this beautiful piano. Today I went to pick it up, and this coming Saturday a piano technician is coming to tune it and make some small repairings. Thanks God for using this family in a great way. Bless them like you jus blessed me with this piano. And thank Laurie for being so kind. Be blessed :)

Burger King, Jenison, MI After a long day I was in line at the drive thru at Burger King. It was around 3:00 PM and I was just waiting to drive forward to pick up my order. I had my money in hand, and I handed it to the lady and she said "It's been taken care of" I said, "What?" run that by me again. She handed me the card and said the driver ahead of you took care of your order and wants you to have this card. I was shocked. It lifted my spirits a lot. I can't wait to go out and do this for someone. Thanks for making my day.

Zeeland Today was my birthday so I was going to treat myself to breakfast at McD's on my way to work in the morning. When I got to the window to pay, I was told that the gentleman ahead of me had bought my meal. It is hard to describe the feeling when someone does something like that for you. I wanted to chase him down to give him a big hug! I was in such shock that I didn't even think to do the same for the person behind me. I can't wait to pay it forward!

Holland, MI I received this card from Fellowship Reformed Church as part of a Sunday service about helping others. We were encouraged to do something in the name of Christ for someone else. I decided to crochet lap blankets and wheel chair shawls and deliver them to Providence Rehabilition Center in Zeeland, MI. Hopefully these will help keep the residents warm in winter when it is cold outside and warm in the summer with the air conditioning on. Blessings, Linda
