First off, Happy New Year to you all!!!
We wanted to start the year off on a positive note. So we did :)
We have a promotion on our webstore from Jan 1st - Jan 15th. With all purchases of a black left coast hipS-sister, we will include a Pay it forward bracelet.
What is Pay it Forward?
It's a movement that has no boundaries. It's not affected by age, gender, race, religion, industry, affiliation, or sexual preference. It's simple and yet so powerful. You are encouraged to wear a bracelet as a constant reminder to perform random acts of kindness throughout your day. You are also encouraged to part with your bracelet when you see fit, in order to impart onto someone else the Pay it Forward philosophy.
At hipS-sister, we believe anyone and everyone can wear the bracelet and perform acts of kindness in a more conscious and focused manner. There really is nothing holding anyone back from being a part of this movement. It can be as simple as helping someone carry their groceries to their car, keeping a door open, smiling when you make eye contact with individuals around you, or slipping some change into an expired parking meter. That said, we believe that as human beings, we should live out our lives in this manner all the time, with or without the bracelet on. (Truth be told though, having it on your wrist is a constant reminder, and with the busy lives we all live, a constant reminder isn't a bad thing).
Pay it Forward is the hope that one individual act of kindness will multiply. So many people we’ve met have expressed a need or want to be part of “something” greater than themselves, something by which they can directly affect lives and create a better future for everyone. Pay it Forward is such a “thing” and the bracelet is a symbol, a little reminder, that we can be the change we want to see in the world, one small act of kindness at a time.
We aren't going to stop spreading the Pay it Forward philosophy once the January promotion is over. Throughout the year, we will be randomly selecting orders received and slip in a Pay it Forward bracelet in its front zippered pocket. Be sure to check when you get your orders and PAY it FORWARD sisters :)
If we've peaked your interest and you'd like to learn more about the Pay it Forward movement and philosophy, we encourage you to visit their webpage at www.pifexperience.org for more details.
