It’s fitting that Pay it Forward day would fall during Earth Week, and for those of you who thought Pay it Forward was simply a sentiment, or just that sad Haley Joel Osment movie, then the road to redemption begins today. What began as a concept and a book, has grown into a full blown recognized national day, which simply asks us to be selfless, and do something for someone else. There are hundreds of easy ways to take part in this amazing concept, from buying someones cup of coffee, to letting someone cut in front of you in line. Here are 5 more simple ways to Pay it Forward today.
