As a small business we try to give to various Charities. As a way of promoting the ” Pay It Forward ” idea we have decided to share with you some of the Charities. Our thinking – The more people that share and act on this idea, the better we can help those in need.

The book, ” Pay It Forward “, was released in January of 2000, by Catherine Ryan Hyde as an action plan within a work of fiction. Reuben St. Clair, the teacher and protagonist in the book “Pay It Forward”, starts a movement with this voluntary,extra-credit assignment:
THINK OF AN IDEA FOR WORLD CHANGE, AND PUT IT INTO ACTION.
Trevor, the 12-year-old hero of “Pay It Forward,” thinks of quite an idea. He describes it to his mother and teacher this way:
“You see, I do something real good for three people. And then when they ask how they can pay it back, I say they have to Pay It Forward. To three more people. Each. So nine people get helped. Then those people have to do twenty-seven.” He turned on the calculator, punched in a few numbers. “Then it sort of spreads out, see. To eighty-one. Then two hundred forty-three. Then seven hundred twenty-nine. Then two thousand, one hundred eighty-seven. See how big it gets?”
