Have you ever been touched by a kind gesture that turned your life around? If so, did you ever want to repay that person’s kindness, perhaps to another person? In an older movie, that concept was called paying it forward. And the whole idea of paying it forward was that if you did three good deeds to three different people, and each one of those people would do three good deeds to three others (and so on), then the world would slowly but surely become a better place. Now imagine having a day where the world basically focuses on doing random acts of kindness in an effort to pay it forward. The holiday was founded by Blake Beattie, while the effort to bring Pay It Forward Day to the Philippines was started by Charley Johnson.
