Pay It Forward: James Kallis
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: James Kallis
Client was able to help: Someone he met at LAX
A little extra help was needed because: This person had just arrived in the US. He spoke no English, was unemployed, broke and needed a place to crash. James took him in and now he can speak English, has money and a home. He still needs financial help so James’ pay it forward gave him the little extra help he needed. This young man is his son that he adopted from Central America. Below is a photo from the first moment they met as well as a more recent photo.
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.
