Pay It Forward – Birthday Blessings

Today’s story brings to light another great way to teach children the importance of giving rather than receiving.  WE love the fact that this little girl and her family were creative with how one idea could be a blessing for so many different people.  Thank you for sharing your story and we wish you a happy belated birthday, Miss Bethany!! 🙂  This was a special idea from a special little girl.

IMG_6023Our daughter, Bethany, recently celebrated her 5th Birthday.  As a family, we decided to ask her friends who attended her birthday party not to bring a gift but instead bring a non-perishable food item for our local food bank.

Bethany was very excited to use her birthday as a way to do a good deed and help those less fortunate so close to Christmas.  My social butterfly of a daughter had 22 friends attend her birthday party and together we collectively were able to donate a whopping 116lbs of food to The Lethbridge Food Bank!!

Each child received a Pay It Forward card in their treat bag and we hope that they too are able to find a way to Pay It Forward!  We are so proud of Bethany!!
