"I have never seen such a genuine smile on my son's face, nor seen such immense internal happiness beaming through him. I waited to send this note to see if it was a temporary gift, but it is sticking! The impact is real!"

I looked at my husband and gave him one of my “are we nuts?” looks as we agreed to let her go...

Over the next few years my daughter would help recruit, market and advocate Pay It Forward tours at her school....

As a parent, I have witnessed the growth and self-confidence these Tours have helped build and the friendships that may never have happened.
