This purpose of this site is to tell as many real ‘Pay It Forward’ stories in South Africa as possible : about the people doing something for the benefit of others without expecting any reward, asking them instead to do the same for others : don’t pay the favour back, pay it forward.
Have you done anyone a favour, or know someone who did, without expecting anything in return? Just because you felt you wanted to do it? That’s paying it forward – write it down and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org via eMail – no matter how big or small the deed, it’s the principle that counts.
Maybe someone has helped you out of a difficult situation and didn’t want any compensation, either a long time ago or recently – have a look at some sample stories on the American ‘Pay It Forward’ website here.
Publishing the real stories helps to show the cynics that the concept really works everywhere, it gives much-deserved recognition to those who do the good work, and it displays the results of their efforts to the public for the inspiration of others.
The Blue Crane is South Africa’s national bird and my website about personal development has the same name because this country has given me so much as an expatriate from Germany for almost 23 years.
I know that there are thousands of ‘Pay It Forward’ stories of goodwill in South Africa to be told. Again, please write them down and eMail them to me at email@example.com – I will put them up on this WeBlog for the whole world to see.
