Pay it Forward Canada – Terie Craig and the “Responses” to PIF!
All this because Terie Craig chose to step up and talk about her Passion. That’s the power of this simple movement, it allows people to be a part of something bigger than themselves but to do it their way.
I will have to say that this is the third year I have been to WEE — I LOVE this weekend! It is the most amazing, refreshing and empowering weekend – and I wouldn’t miss it for the world!
This year I was given the pleasure of a surprise! Terie was one of the most uplifting speakers I have ever seen – even though I was in tears the entire time! J These were tears of JOY! I am familiar with the concept of “Pay It Forward” however, it seemed to be a passing trend in society. I was SO impressed and taken back by the thoughtfulness of others and how quickly a simple act can change the lives of so many!
As the tears rolled down my face, I felt an overwhelming urge to take immediate action to get PIF into the lives of as many people that I could! To talk about it is one thing, to do something is another! I have done many random acts of kindness since this weekend – and I will have to tell you – I get an AMAZING feeling doing things for others. BUT what takes the cake – is the look on people’s faces as you hand them your bracelet or tell them that no thanks is necessary and to Pay It Forward. You first get a confused look – and then….. a SMILE you will remember forever!
Thank you Terie for bringing this simple concept back into my life! And Thank you PPPC for making one of the best memories I will ever have! I will never forget to PAY IT FORWARD!!!!!
