People In Nova Scotia Handed Out Envelopes Of Money And Beautiful Things Happened

People In Nova Scotia Handed Out Envelopes Of Money And Beautiful Things Happened | Antigonish | Scoop.it
A group of locals in Antigonish, Nova Scotia fanned out around town yesterday and hid close to $1,000 in 170 pink envelopes. Each envelop came with a note encouraging people “to pay it forward with an ‘awesome’ gesture and consider sharing it on social media.” Awesome Foundation of Antigonish Awesome Foundation of Antigonish   The project was the work of the local Awesome Foundation chapter. They usually give away $1,000 a month for local initiatives, such as the restoration of a mural or the construction of an accessible community playground. This month, they did the envelops. ID: 8263188 “It was amazing to see people’s reactions, the smiles, the excitement, and the shock of just finding money in a pink envelope that says ‘open me’,” James Smeaton, who helps run the local Awesome chapter, told DisqusFeed Canada. ID: 8262059 This young man found an envelope and used it to by lunch for a fellow member of the community. ID: 8261990 A woman found a $20 envelop and donated the money to KidSport, a charity that helps underprivileged kids participate in organized sports. ID: 8261993 Smeaton also received an email from a woman who found a $30 envelope. “I’ve decided to pass on the money to the family of Scott Cameron, an Antigonish high school student who died tragically last week, to help defray the cost of funeral expenses.” ID: 8263250 One of the most popular things to do with the money was to buy coffee for a stranger. This woman used the $5 envelope found near her gym to do just that. ID: 8261995 “Each person was welcome to keep the money, but despite that dozens and dozens of people choose to pay it forward and essentially create a wave of good will across the community,” Smeaton said. “In particular, the kids that found the money really had a real nice pause for thought to consider the value of giving. For me you can hardly put a price on that, but if you did, $5 seems like a good deal.” ID: 8263207
