Throughout our page, you will find one simple message, we encourage you to support a story, and then Pay It Forward by sharing a few words of hope, inspiration, and encouragement. When I express the words (Pay It Forward,) it is encouraging you to set an example for others that it is possible to live a life of happiness. Paying It Forward is the ability to show others that you care without ever expressing a single word. Paying It Forward is understanding that with each story you support you are directly helping to offset the cost of rehabilitation for an individual in need. Paying It Forward is about creating a lifestyle worth living for our next generation.
