There is tremendous power and positive energy in giving – it is a shame that not enough people have experienced it to the fullest. Pay It Forward Day is about all people, from all walks of life giving to someone else and making a positive difference. At last count there were more than 38 countries around the world participating in the day.
So why Pay it Forward?
- To encourage all of us to embrace the incredible power of giving.
- To show each other that we care and that there is love, hope and magic all around us.
- To know that we may be only one person in this world, but to one person, at one time, we are the world.
Make a difference and experience the true power of giving. Thank you for your support. Together we can change the world – one good deed at a time!
A message from Blake Beattie (International Pay It Forward Day Founder)
‘Pay it Forward Day’ is a brilliant concept by Catherine Ryan Hyde from her book of the same title. Some people were originally quite skeptical of the whole idea: they said that it was good in theory, but not in practice. I challenged this point of view believing that people are genuinely giving by nature, but many get caught up in the hustle and bustle of every day life. The last Thursday in April is a time when each of us can get to experience the ‘Power of Giving’ and a massive, positive ripple effect continues as Pay it Forward cards travel around with each good deed that is completed.
A message from Catherine Ryan Hyde (Author of Pay it Forward)
Pay it Forward Day is a brilliant initiative. It embodies the power of giving which is the cornerstone of my book. It is amazing the difference a simple idea can have in changing the world – one good deed at a time. I hope everyone can join with Blake on the last Thursday in April and Pay it Forward.

So why just make it one day? Shouldn’t we be Paying it Forward every day?
Absolutely. We should be looking for ways to help others every day. Pay it Forward Day is meant to be a powerful reminder of the positive energy associated when we give to others without expectation of receiving anything in return. From what we get we make a living – from what we give, we make a life.
‘Pay it Forward Day’ is a time when we all can remind ourselves of the power of giving and in the process we make this world that little bit brighter.
