This is our entry into the "Fourth Annual Pay It Forward ActiveRain Challenge For November 2017" hosted by Belinda Spillman.

 

Sometimes when hearing the words "Pay It Forward" the image of someone in desparate need is conjured up as the recipient of kindness from another.

 

Yes - that is one example of paying it forward - but "paying it forward" can take many different shapes and forms, and does not always need to be a "charitable" effort.

 

Suzanne and I donate to several worthwhile charities.

 

The Honor Health Desert Misson Food Bank receives several visits a year from us. They put food on the table for truly needy families and we are honored to be able to help.

 

Sojourner Center is another charity we have donated to in the past, and plan to do so again before the holiday season kicks in: "Victims of domestic violence often escape with nothing but the clothes they are wearing. Sojourner Center offers an on-site donation center where residents can rebuild their lives, one piece at a time. Using a voucher system, program participants shop for necessities like clothing and toiletries, as well as other items that make them feel at home in their new environment. The Donation Center is available only to Sojourner Center’s residents."

 

 

A different example of paying it forward happened recently when friends of ours expressed interest in getting involved with aerial drones and real estate aerial photography.  

 

 

Yes - we have our own Aerial Photography/Videography company - Sunlit Drones, LLC - but that doesn't mean we can't share what we've learned with prospective future competitors!

 

We've spent a few hours with them already discussing how they might get started in the business, and they will be accompanying us on a couple of drone shoots before the end of the year.  

 

Suzanne and I spent weeks going through and digesting information about the business opportunity, and we were happy to share the "distilled key learnings" from that effort with our friends!

 

There are so many ways to pay it forward!

Good morning, there are many ways to pay if forward, as you mention. You two are obviously gracious people willing to share the bounty with those less fortunate - and to share your talents with others in the same industry.  D

Tony and Suzanne, you are absolutely correct, paying it forward can take so many different forms from just a small kindness to the biggest philantrophical gesture one could make. What really matters is that it fills a need and someone else is a little better off because of you!
