The Michiana Pay It Forward Foundation

We promote the concept of Paying It Forward with acts of kindness, without expectation of return, in our community. Although we offer monthly Pay It Forward Days for adults, our primary focus is on the youth. We do several speaking engagements at youth oriented groups and clubs to share about how easy it is to spread kindness. We then challenge students to think of a way they can make our community better by Paying It Forward with kindness and to put their idea into action. We offer mini grants to students to help them with their ideas so they can see first hand the impact that a simple act of kindness can have on another
