Pay It Forward: Jackie Elphic
Pay It Forward - Random Acts of Kindness
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: Jackie Elphic
Client was able to help: The Humane Society of Ventura
A little extra help was needed because: On December 9th, The Humane Society of Ventura recused ten neglected animals. They were asking for the public’s help in order to care for and feed these emaciated animals. Jackie wasn’t sure how she was going to pay it forward until one day she read the Moorpark Acorn and saw an article about The Humane Society of Ventura and the resent rescue of these neglected animals. Jackie’s pay it forward went to help feed these animals and give them the care that they deserved. The Humane Society of Ventura County is a private, non-profit 501c3 organization founded in 1932. They receive no direct financial assistance from city, county, state agencies or National Animal Welfare Organizations such as The Humane Society of the United States and the ASPCA. Their Mission is dedicated to promoting the health, safety, welfare, compassionate care and protection of all animals through education and community outreach programs. If you would like to pay it forward to this wonderful organization, please visit www.HSVC.org to donate, volunteer and/or adopt a loving new animal into your 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.
