PAY IT FORWARD FRIDAY- November 8th, 2013

November 8th, 2013 PAY IT FORWARD FRIDAYS Act of Kindness

Encourage a Stranger

We all have bad days, we all have down times and periods in our lives where things just seem to never go our way. It is during these times a word of encouragement can go a long way. Sometimes it comes from a loved one or a friend but sometimes that encouragement can come from a total stranger and the strange thing is….sometimes the encouragement from a stranger goes a lot further than from a loved one.

So today I am asking you to encourage a stranger or even someone you don’t know very well. I will even take it a step further this week and ask that you encourage a stranger I am going to encourage. His name is Aaron. He is the son of a facebook friend of mine. He has found himself in the middle of a hard time right now and is currently serving a sentence in prison. I do not know how long, I do not know why all I know is that he is going through a tough time and with the holidays close at hand he is growing more and more discouraged. So with your help maybe we can send him some encouragement so he can make it through this tough time in his life.


Here is the message from his mom:
I hate to ask for help, but I need to.  Holidays are already hard on inmates so God gave me an idea. I’m asking for anyone who feels led, to send him a note of encouragement. {especially MEN} I want him to be bombarded over the next 30 days with whatever God lays on someone’s heart to share with him. …I just think it would be good for him to hear from other people besides his parents. Plus, kids don’t always hear what mom and dad have to say.

If you send a card, keep it plain…no glitter, music, etc. they will throw it away or return it to you if it has any of those things because they’re SO picky.

Thank you so much, I appreciate you!

Thanks everyone. Enjoy your Friday!!!!

This is so cool and easy to do. Before you leave the house today grab a pocket full of coins. You know you have some around. If not stop somewhere early and get a couple of dollars worth of coins and put them in your pocket.

Then simply watch their faces as they notice the coins they have just found. It will surely brighten your day.

If you don’t think you will comes across any kids today then go out of your way to take some coins or perhaps a dollar to a child you know and leave it for them to use as they please. It will brighten their day and you know it will brighten yours.

Pay It Forward Friday August 30th, 2013

August 29th, 2013 PAY IT FORWARD FRIDAY Act of Kindness



Chances are you are a parent or a grandparent and if you are not chances are you have a niece or a nephew or if nothing else you know a kid. At least give me that!!! : ) I recently had the pleasure of being asked to appear on a television show called Creating Cooperative Kids with Bill Corbett. This is a public access show that goes to over 250 affiliates with a about 10,000 people watching in each location. ( 2.5 million people). My discussion with Bill involved speaking about how parents can influence their kids to pay it forward. As I stated on the show… ” once a child understand that they, one person, they make a difference in the world guess what happens to their self esteem, guess what happens to their self worth and their self confidence. Guess what happens to bullying in school when kids don’t have to pick on others to make themselves feel better. Guess what happens to bullying in schools when a child’s self worth is so strong that someone calling them a name doesn’t even phase them. Guess what happens when a young person feels so good about themselves that they don’t have to turn to drugs, or alcohol or peer pressure to feel better about themselves. ” So today…I want you to get a child involved and teach them the power of kindness by PAYING IT FORWARD!!! Today is wild card Friday….you get to choose what you want to do however you have to do it with a child and or teach a child how to do it and then make sure they do it. ( Some examples: taking some old toys that they don’t use anymore and donate them, read to a younger child, give someone a hug, open a door for several people, let a child pay a toll, let a child pick someone at a restaurant for whom you can buy a dessert or a coffee, make a card for a local firefighter or policeman or anyone). Please send us emails or reply on our facebook what you choose to do and if you can take pics and send us them so we can use them here.


See below my segment on the Creating Cooperative Kids show if you would like to watch it.

Advertiser Testimonial from Merry Maids

At Merry Maids, our whole philosophy and mission statement is rooted in service to others. It is easy to lose sight of this basic fundamental however, becoming consumed with staffing, financials, logistics, well, you know what I am talking about. We became aware of Dr. Clint Steele and his Pay it Forward movement in the spring of 2013 at a local business breakfast in Scarborough. This basic concept of doing little things for others, in an either calculated or random fashion, was very attractive to me, both professionally and personally. Helping others is nothing new, and all of us do it every day through our business or as friends, parents, leaders, etc. However, this conscious effort to perform random acts of kindness takes little effort on our part, and makes a huge difference. Our business has been growing over the past couple years, and I am convinced that a large part of our success has been our focus on helping others. Is helping others good for business? It sure is. Customers, especially customers in Maine, love to support a company that they know is using some of their money to help other hard working Mainers. The Pay it Forward concept is a fun concept as well, because something as simple as paying for someone’s coffee in line, can make their day and even possibly change their position on human nature! Wow, now there is a lofty thought, but certainly not out of reach. We love supporting Pay it Forward Magazine both through the purchase of ad space, and the promotion of their mission to our staff and customers. It has proven to be a very positive endevour that has sparked enthusiasm in our staff, which has led to greater productivity at work. We are looking forward to continuing to be a part of this awesome project and magazine.

PAY IT FORWARD FRIDAY- June 14th, 2013

PAY IT FORWARD FRIDAY!!!! Today’s Act of Kindness is very simply to give a hug to someone. No reason whatsoever. Simply ask if you can give that person a hug and when they say yes…hug away!!!!
A few years ago I was a practicing chiropractor and acupuncturist. A lady in her early 70’s came in for pain control for a terminal cancer diagnoses. She was very bitter and angry. As treatment progressed I could see she was getting worse. Something told me one day to give her a hug. Each visit there after I gave her a hug. I told her to go home and start giving hugs, as many as she could could all day long. She passed away a few months later. … About a year later I stood at the gas station putting gas in my truck. A man in the car behind me walked up to me and asked if I was Dr. Steele? I said yes. He shook my hand and said THANK YOU!! He asked if I remembered a woman who came in with terminal cancer whom I told to start giving hugs. I stated yes. He said she was my mother. My mother was an angry, bitter woman towards the end of her life to the point we could not get close to her at all. ” I am not sure exactly what you told her about your hugs to her and about her giving us hugs but the last few months of her life were some of the most loving months I have ever had with my mom. THANK YOU!!!!

 Hugs make a difference. Give a hug today!!!! Then we ask that you take the 90 Day Hug Challenge. WE DARE YOU!!!. All details here.
