HELP KIDS LEARN TO PAY IT FORWARD!!!! In this day and age, it is important to create an environment and culture of spreading kindness and love. This campaign is designed to raise funds that will then be awarded to children based on their "best practice" of paying forward. There are different names for all these generations, millennials, generation Z, etc... let's EMPOWER the next generation of children to be creative, thoughtful, and consistently looking for ways to help their fellow generation. My adopted father inspired me to be creative with a small amount of money to pay forward, and so I am starting a foundation in his name. It is the best way I can honor him. Please donate and help me raise money to continue the foundation so that continually, we will ask for kids ages 6 to 18 to submit their best "pay it forward" ideas to a community portal. Domain names are purchased, website is being developed for both ongoing funding and also submission portal for kid's ideas. Those ideas will be reviewed by the board, and then the best 5 monthly submissions/ideas each will receive a $500 award to use to fulfill their "pay it forward" idea . They then will be tracked on their progress of what they do with the award. These success stories will then be re-distributed throughout the donation community and local press/social media to inspire more donations/ideas so we can impact more children. Domains are www.empowernextgen.com and www.ourgenpaysforward.com These kids will be known as the generation that pays it forward. Seed money to be used for attorney fees, web development, as well as initial scholarship awards to submissions. All donations will be tracked and given credit for each project they help fund.
