Pay It Forward Foundation was formed with the desire to carry out the mission defined by the principle of generosity witnessed in the movie Pay It Forward.
We as a completely volunteer group raise money to help hard-working people who have fallen on tough times and ask that they, in turn, help at least three other people with random acts of kindness. Mother Teresa demonstrated non-stop random acts of kindness in her work and we believe that she offered the best example of how to spread the love of God.
While not a Christian organization, we do take our core principles from the teachings of Jesus. However, we welcome all faiths, colors, creeds, denominations, orientations, and any other -tion you can think of. Regarding the teachings of Jesus that guide us, we offer these as examples: “I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brothers, you did it to me.”, “…whatever you wish that others would do to you, do also to them…” Bottom line, we wish to demonstrate through our actions that love and faith are the two most powerful entities in the universe.
We believe, when two or more of us are gathered together to help our brother or sister, that the hand of an infinite source of power is there to guide us whether you call that power Jesus, Buddha, God, Allah, Collective Consciousness, or Supreme Being of the Universe.
In summary, Pay It Forward Foundation, in the spirit of love and faith, raises money to help hard-working people who have fallen on tough times regardless of their beliefs, color, sex, age or orientation. The only thing we ask is that the recipients, in the same spirit of love and faith, pay it forward with three random acts of kindness.
