Only 6 More Days to Share Your "Pay it Forward" Post

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Aspen Lane Real Estate Colorful Colorado CRE# 40005863

The third annual 'Pay it Forward' challenge will end on midnight - November 30th.  I don't think myself or the "Three Wise Men" will be staying up until midnight on the 30th to read your entries, so get them in now.


This is a great opportunity to inspire us for the holiday season.


There are many things you all do (come on we all know you do) that we would love to read about.  


Many have said they want to keep their charitable acts of kindness private and I totally understand that.  Please do not think of this challenge as bragging, but rather a channel by which to inspire us and fill our hearts with joy.


Write your post and post a link in the original challenge blog via the link above.


Myself and the 'Three Wise Men' - Michael Jacobs , Dick Greenberg and Brian England , can't wait to share in your incredible moments.


'Tis the Season to Inspire!

Good morning, Belinda --- speak for yourself as this judge plans to be working until 12AM waiting for any last minute entries in this year's Pay It Forward Challenge.  Of course, I'm in a different time zone and a bit of a procrastinator when it comes to contests/challenges.    

There have been many inspiring stories shared and this contest is the perfect spot to showcase the generosity as well as the creative ways to make a difference.   And it doesn't need to be something elaborate or complicated either.   Like in life -- simple gestures can be quite meaningful.  

Ok, now it's back to some leftovers....if only I had some....

Hi Belinda - Your contest has always impressed me with the amazing range of generosity shown by the ActiveRain members, and it has always given us so many great ideas to pay it forward in our own communities.

Thanks, I have been so busy this year with business and being an NAR officer that I forgot that I have other responsibilities to the community. Glad you are doing this.

It's wonderful that the three of you are volunteering to run this contest, and I wish you many entries, but not so many that Michael Jacobs has to stay up until 3 AM, LOL. I wrote a pay it forward blog but I put it on my own website so I can't submit it. :(

There have been a lot of good posts, but I know there are many others out there that I want to read, so I hope people will share their stories.  I saw a post this morning, but it wasn't linked in the contest post, after I read it, I will tag you and the other judges.

Thanks for the reminder! I was about to write a post to enter your contest and realized I already had. The begining of the month seems so long ago. Thanks for all you do to sponsor this each year.
