Sunday, April 28 • El Club Rotario de Dorado participated in the International “Pay it Forward Day” on Sunday at the Buen Pastor Kitchen preparing lunch for approximately 60 people in the communities of Mameyal, Higuillar and dowtown Dorado.

The Founder of “Pay it Forward Day” Mr. Blake Beattie, says “he is overwhelmed at the support. Of course, we should be paying kindness forward every day, but many of us get so caught up in the busyness of life & lose sight of what is most important. Pay it Forward Day is a great reminder of the positive energy when we give to others.”

International Pay it Forward Day is on April 28 every year. Inspired by the book and movie ‘Pay it Forward’, it involves people performing acts of kindness for others without expecting anything in return. Instead, recipients are asked to ‘pay the kindness forward’ to others in need, essentially creating a positive ripple effect of giving.

Pay it Forward Day has spread to over 80 countries inspiring over 5 million acts of kindness. There have been over 50 state and city proclamations for the day and 100s of schools and businesses are now involved. It is a global phenomenon which has been featured on numerous radio stations, magazines, newspapers and on television networks.
