Pay it Forward: Chris Bouckaert
Pay it forward is an expression for describing the beneficiary of a good deed repaying it to others instead of to the original benefactor. The concept is old, but the phrase may have been coined by Lily Hardy Hammond in her 1916 book In the Garden of Delight.
Winter of 2014, Investor’s Advantage gave $50.00 gift cards to random clients to pay it forward in their communities to those who were in need. Here is one of those touching stories that they would like to share with you. Hope you enjoy reading it as much as they enjoyed being a part of these random acts of kindness.
Name of Client: Chris Bouckaert
Client was able to help: Pawpurrs Kitten Rescue
A little extra help was needed because: Pawpurrs in Simi Valley rescues kittens and cats that are slated for euthanasia from shelters and throughout the community. They are dedicated to their rescue, rehabilitation and placement. Their goal is to save as many lives as they can, and offer them a chance at a long, loving and fulfilling life. Pawpurrs are people trying to make a difference in this time when there are so many animals abandoned. It is rather like trying to bail the Titanic with a teaspoon. Their Mission: To place rescued cats and kittens into GOOD, LOVING, PERMANENT homes. To prevent pet overpopulation through spaying and neutering, rather than euthanasia and to educate the public on the importance of spaying and neutering. Pawpurrs co-founders Karen Stakem and Gary Stein, urge you to please pay it forward and pass the word to your friends; they can save lives with one simple operation. Pawpurrs is always in need of rescue supplies. Chris’ $50.00 gift card went to food and medicine for these adorable felines. Visit Pawpuurs on Yelp for more information on how you can donate to this amazing rescue service or adopt a new friend into your loving home.
We hope that this story has encouraged you to make a difference in this world and pay it forward to someone or someplace that could use a random act of kindness. It is our pleasure to be a co-partner with you.
Thank you for choosing Investor’s Advantage.
