Shine It Forward

Ashley, from The Shine Project(go there after reading this!!), tweeted last week about needing some help with a project. 
Doesn't tell us what. 
No hints. Nothing.
You can see where to buy these shirts below!
Of course, I tweet back and I receive a lovely little email from her. 
She explains that she needs us to write a post today on said project. 
BUT STILL NO HINTS!

At this point, it's killing me!
 I am so excited to know, but she hasn't let me in on it yet.

(You're feeling that way right now, aren't you?)

Well I got that email the other day, and immediately told my boyfriend.
(I know, I know...I broke the secrecy rule. But he hates me blogging anyways so no words will come outta him!)
I am so proud to be one of the people to help launch this wonderful project <3


This is what she said:
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.

Seriously...is Ashley not AMAZING?!
I love this project and I cannot wait to get my card in the mail and begin!
I promise that I will post about what I do...and who knows...maybe YOU will see my card!

Please go check out Ashley's page, she has some great merch, and she is doing so much to change the lives of those around us!
