Pay it Forward to those Who Need!

Pay it Forward to those Who Need! 


The world is so full of many ways to Pay it Forward in our daily lives.    We pay it forward to our next generation by recycling.......   We pay it forward to those in line behind us at Costco when we let them go ahead with their one or two items......   We pay it forward by letting someone go ahead of us when waiting in line at a stop sign.....    How about the simple opening of a door for someone with a smile?    

Most of us try at Holiday time to pay it forward by giving charitably to the Red Cross, Cancer, or other similar organizations.  We also try to bring food and toiletry items to charitable organizations such as Hope - where they can distribute them to those in more need than we.  

Just a simple smile and handshake sometimes will turn someone's day around, and make their day more functional for them.  They in turn will help someone else out, (or at least not grump at them!)   I even got a huge smile from my sister when I gave her the shoes that I never could wear (but loved) - brand new!!!!

Pay it Forward



I have always made a point of making sure all of my used clothing, shoes, furniture, etc makes it for another round in someone else's possession.   I assumed that everyone did this same thing, until I was speaking with our garbage man the other day.   What an eye opening conversation!!!    Apparently, the vast majority of we humans just throw our used items straight into the garbage!   A brand new coat might very well be found in the garbage, as well as a brand new toy!   The garbage man said he could start a used items shop if he wanted.....

My sellers are never allowed to just throw away unwanted items.   I have several groups who help the less fortunate - the Battered Women of Bridgeport, the shelters, etc......   These organizations pick up and take things away at your convenience for free!     They are run by volunteers who care.   

Don't forget to Pay it Forward this holiday season!

 

The most recent ranking of the nation’s high schools published by U.S. News & World Report distinguished Connecticut with 11 gold medal schools, 24 silver medal schools, and 4 bronze medal schools. Of the top 10 best high schools listed, half were in the 26th district. Weston, Ridgefield, Wilton, Joel Barlow, Darien, New Canaan, and Staples High School were recognized.
