Paw (Pay) it Forward Day

I'd like to introduce you to my furry friend, surf dog Ricochet.

Not only does Ric surfs for fun and raises money for various charitable causes, she's also the Ambassador for Pay it Forward and I'm sharing the email Ric's mom sent us.

Hey Everyone!
Have you ever seen the movie "Pay it Forward"? It's about a 12 year old boy who did three good deeds for others in need. All he asked in return, was for them to pass on the good deed to three other people, and keep the cycle going.
Well, there's a "Pay It Forward Day" on April 29th, and Ricochet was asked to be an ambassador for it. So, she wants to know if you'd like to get involved? All you have to do is perform three acts of kindness for three people on April 29th, and then instruct them to pay the favor forward.
If you can pay this email forward to your friends, post on your blog/Facebook page, etc... that will count for one good deed! , This will help get the word out, so the cycle of generosity and kindness will ripple across the world, making us all better people.
The link to her web page has all the information, including a new video she made (I edited) about Pay It Forward Day. I haven't heard that the video needs a kleenex warning, but if that changes, I'll let you know!
There are over 15 countries involved, hundreds of schools are participating, and thousands of people will be paying it forward across the world. Will you join us?
P.S. Ricochet says dogs can "paw" it forward on the 29th, if your dog wants to get involved!

Hope you can spread the word on Paw (Pay) it Forward Day. Thanks.
