Pay it forward.

Teaching others to practice random acts of kindness.

Small acts of random kindness that spread the widest ripples

It is easy to be kind and the more often you do it, the more it becomes a habit. It is much more difficult, however, to think of random acts of kindness that are not only kind but also promote the practice of random acts of kindness. While it is amazing how a simple thank you can lift the spirit of both people involved, just thanking someone does not necessarily promote the pay it forward cause. For the random act of kindness to have a ripple effect it must be recognized as a random act of kindness. That's why leaving your change in the soda machine for the next person, although very kind, does not work, while leaving a good book in a public place with a smile card does. That's why it is also important that you should never forget to mention that you would really like to see it paid forward, when someone thanks you for a random act of kindness.

Instead of mowing an elderly neighbours lawn yourself, why not pay a local teen to mow the lawn. That way you teach someone else about random acts of kindness and, when the teen talks about this with his parents, they may start practicing random acts of kindness as well.
