    It is a concept of giving to someone who will not give you anything in return, but they will in turn give to someone else in the future.

    Someone does something nice for you or gives you something and you return the favor by doing something nice for/or to someone else!

    'Pay it forward' is when someone does something nice for you, you then do something nice for someone else, instead of paying them back. There is a wonderful movie by this title that illustrates the concept. $1.00 rental at redbox!

    there was a movie on this subject. and it is about when someone does something nice or good for you then you pay it forward to someone else. How much nicer this world would be if everyone followed this rule.

    It just means helping out someone else without anything in return. Like if you know someone who needs fabric, you donate and they pay it forward by helping someone else in need. Many of these board members do it and let me tell you it gives you a great feeling inside!!!

    I highly recommend the movie "pay it forward" It's a heart warmer, and sure made me want to be a better person.

    the consept is that when some one does some thing for you instead of paying them back, the little boy asked them to pay it foward to 3 other people, then those 3 would each pass it on to 3, and the numb ers would really grow. would be so nice to have this happen. just think, if every time some one did us a nice, we passed it on to three others, well it could get so out of hand we would all be so busy paying it forward we would never have enought time to be nasty and mean!! LOL

    How does one go about getting someones address on this board to send something to them as in pay it forward? With out the person knowing that it is you sending it.
