Spread the Shine

I'm so happy to help announce the brand new project, Ashley, of The Shine Project has started! If you read this post where I showed off my Shine necklace, you may remember that Ashley is trying to make the world a better place! Her latest endeavor is pretty amazing and I'm so excited to help her spread the word! 
Here's Ashley: "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. 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 they 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.

I AM SO EXCITED. This project had the potential of working small miracles in the lives of those we pass, and we will then be able to see how far one simple act can go. I want to spread the shine community into something that is in every city, so that we can get more projects done and change more lives... I have strongly felt like this is a big way that will get accomplished."

Pretty incredible right? Such an easy way to brighten a day! And the whole idea of tracking the card?? This girl is genius and I really admire her ambition to go after her dreams. Check out Ashley's blog for more information on how to get your very own Pass It Forward card!
