How/why this Pay it Forward campaign started
John Coyne – Wells for Zoë
In a previous life I was a teacher in Secondary School. Recently I got a mail from a student I taught over 30 years ago where he added €250 thanking me for investing (my time) in him and asking that I Pay it Forward as I had done for him all those years ago. I believe that so much good is done in the world by small generous, advance investments. I am now using this €250 gift to pass on to 50 others hoping that they can Pay it Forward at every possible opportunity in your life.
My latest 4am thought is a Pay it Forward ‘Card’ that you can buy and pass the thought along.
For a cost €5 it will pay for clean water for life for a family in Malawi, one of the poorest places imaginable. It now comes as a gift from me to you but maybe you would consider saying ‘Hi’ to someone who has helped to make your life better and ask them to do another little Pay it Forward. Of course it will cost you a fiver but it WILL change the lives of a family in Malawi forever. You will have made a another real difference.
You may want to say “Happy Christmas”, “thanks” or “sorry”, or “I think you’re cute”, or “Happy Birthday”, or even “I love you” to someone you haven’t seen for years; like a teacher or other who kicked your arse, straightened you out, told you ‘that of course you could do it’ or just was kind and fair, or maybe to those who were not so nice, to tell them you forgive them and be rid of it.
At Wells for Zoë we believe that Pay it Forward is a great model for living one’s life. We all need to have a little credit with the Universe.
How will you know that your donation will fund a real well and not just get thrown into a random pool somewhere?
Wells for Zoë are committed to full transparency so the first well to be funded will be PF1 and will be ready by 9th Dec 2016.
When we have 50 donors we install PF2…and so on.
When you do a Pay it Forward you will get a picture with the GPS location and details by e-mail.
