The Shine Project - Secrets Revealed!

Ashley over at The Shine Project has been working on a secret project for a couple of months now and I get to be one of the lucky bloggers to help reveal it and spread it around the world.

What, you may ask is this project....?

WELL...

Pass It Forward was designed to get people to do little things, everyday, that makes an impact on the community around them. Pass it Forward is designed around a card (read card that I've attached now so you understand). Each card is given a unique ID number. Lets say we're at McDonalds, and I decide to pay for the person behind me in the drive through. I'd give the cashier the card, and tell them to pass it along to the next car when the give them the food that has been paid for. I then go home and log into the website that was on the card, and find my unique ID number. I log into it, and add my information... My first name, city, and a description of what I did....
Let's say the person behind me was you, you would pass it forward to someone else, and then would go home and do the same thing. 
From the very beginning, you will be able to track where your card goes, and how many people you affect just by doing one simple act of kindness.

You can head to the Pass it Forward website here and see Ashley's write up from today here

My card will hopefully be arriving soon and as soon as I get it I am hoping to pass it forward to someone else. So if you can think of an awesome idea for me to do then please let me know in the comments.
I already have a few ideas floating around...

You may also remember that I am doing my Change 4 Change jar to help out the Shine Scholarship Students and am currently sitting at $27.30. 
I have been putting part of my tips in there whenever I deliver pizzas.

Helping others can bring so much happiness into our lives. 
Please go and visit Ashley's blog and get involved in helping others out!

And check back a little later to see what I will be doing with my card! :D
