Paying it Forward

I am sure many of you have seen the  movie Pay It Forward, where a kid comes up with the simple but most inspiring idea of doing good and asking in return for the favor to be paid forward to someone else instead. While the idea is not a new one it is a good one. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if everyone was willing to lend a hand, a dollar, a kind word or even just take the time to listen out of the kindness of their hearts. Knowing they will get nothing in return other then the knowledge that they aided someone in some way. To show understanding and compassion not only to a friend or family member but also to a complete stranger. Many people do behave this way, but not nearly enough. Now here is my art connection to this there are a number of shops on Esty and Artfire that offer Pay It Forward items, where they change only the listing fee or material cost… and sometimes completely free. There may or may not be shipping fees most offer free shipping if shipped with other items from their shop. I think that this is a great idea and have made up a few item to post in my shop as PIF listings.

Here are a few links to place where artisans are doing good.
