Community Support

There are a lot of problems in the U.S. and we can’t solve them all. BUT, if we all do some small part we CAN make a difference! As a global community dedicated to kindness and helping others we can bring about change and have a positive impact!

Pay It Forward identifies issues where we believe we can have an impact to support communities dealing with hardship, lack of services, and in need of  assistance.

Current projects are listed on this page with links to more information about the problem and a call to action. 

Your support is greatly appreciated!
