Pay it Forward Challenge

I wrote last week about buying a brownie for a coworker who was laid off. She stopped by my office on Monday to thank me again. She was so touched that I thought of her. Really, it was so easy.

My challenge to you is to do something unexpected for someone and write about it. Either here or on your own blog.

A friend told me that yesterday she was feeling so good about Obama’s victory that when she was getting coffee from a drive-thru she told them she wanted to pay for a coffee for the person in the car behind her. I believe she brightened 2 people’s day, the person she bought the coffee for and the barista.

This isn’t a contest. It’s not at all about how much you spend. It’s about spreading good will simply because you can.

Sorry to seem repetitive, but YES WE CAN!

I was the mystery matcher for the U.T.E.R.U.S fundraiser. Does that count?

p.s. I will call after the kids go to bed:)

Cue Twilight Zone music.

Don't out me, please!

Wow! I'm honored to rub up against the U.T.E.R.U.S. donor. Way to go, Anon!

This is a really cool challenge, Dora. I'll look for opportunities to PIF.
