This contest is now closed. We loved all the ideas but could only select one. Sara is a teacher in a low-income school and will use the money to buy socks and underwear to give to students.
When Pampers asked me how I’d use a $50 gift card to “pay-it-forward” in my community, it was easy to respond. I would enable Help A Mother Out to procure $50 worth of diapers that can be distributed to a woman who cannot afford them.
They sent me a $50 American Express gift card, and I immediately put it in the mail to Help a Mother Out.
A few days later, Help A Mother Out tweeted this message and photo:
@rookiewhitney your kindness in action: these will go to a mom who needs to keep her baby in Early Head Start #hamo
My act of kindness is not “random” because I am always on the lookout for ways to help this organization, but I bet any of you who are imagining what you’d do with a pay it forward opportunity have some terrific ideas.
Guess what! You DO have a chance at this same experience.
Leave a comment below telling me how you’d use a $50 American Express gift card to pay-it-forward within your community. I will select one person on Tuesday, May 24 who will get the opportunity to make their idea a reality. (Pampers will send the winner the gift card.)
A big thank you to Pampers for enabling this program of kindness to celebrate their 50th anniversary.
