HOW WOULD YOU like to find $20 cash?
In our neighboring state to the west, Starion Financial has dropped 650 Kindness Cash wallets containing $20 each in eight North Dakota communities. The project celebrates Pay It Forward Day on April 28.
Now, if you do your math, that’s $13,000 left lying around in places like grocery stores, parks, hotels…
The idea is to use that money to do something good. And the finders are, according to Starion’s website. Organizations like a cancer support group, a domestic violence center and a humane society have already benefited from this project.
Others are enjoying treats from appreciative co-workers. Those are all great choices.
But the story that touches me most is that of Olivia, who found a Kindness wallet under a rock in a South Fargo park. Little Olivia is giving the money to someone at her school.
Likewise in Bismarck, someone found a Kindness wallet, added $80, and left it for two lucky women to find at the Comfort Inn.
I love sharing stories like this that uplift and restore my faith in the goodness of others. (h/t Fargo Forum)
TELL ME, HAVE YOU ever been the recipient of such a random act of kindness? Or have you engaged in a Pay It Forward project like this?
I’d like to hear about creative projects that encourage people to Pay It Forward, to be kind to one another.
