Local chapter passes on good deeds

  • Print

When was the last time you did a good deed? Can’t remember? Pay It Forward Manitoba has created a way to remind you.

April 25 is national Pay It Forward Day, and at 7 a.m. the local chapter will be at the intersection of Broadway Avenue and Osborne Street to hand out 1,000 McCafé coupons and Pay It Forward bracelets.

"We’re just telling people that this is an act of kindness and we’re asking them to pay it forward to somebody else," said St. Vital resident Yvette Deveau, Pay It Forward Manitoba’s founder.

The Pay It Forward movement is a group whose goal is to inspire acts of kindness around the world. Deveau started the Manitoba chapter in November last year with the help of three other volunteers.

"I wanted to do something to just make a difference," said Deveau. "There are no boundaries, there are no excuses why someone can’t be kind to somebody else and why somebody can’t do this."

Deveau estimates there will be between 10 to 20 volunteers out at the intersection Thursday morning in orange T-shirts. They will handing out the coupons and bracelets to cars waiting at the lights.
