Turning coffee into water. The gift of giving 'clean drinking water'.
Pay It Forward HRMG444-14T's insight:

An initiative happening in Tauranga NZ; buy a yummy low cost coffee parcel and provide drinking water for a person living in Cambodia for ten years!

 

Change is necessary in organisations to maintain a competitive advantage over rivals or increase customer base through intiatives such as improving the impact the organisation has on the environment. This competitive strategy sees a local business to Tauranga increase competitiveness by promising to pay it forward, a slight twist on the orgins of the Pay It Forward movement, but if all organisations did something similar the world would be a better place....

Boss gives employees $100 to 'pay it forward' - KRQE News 13

Boss gives employees $100 to 'pay it forward' - KRQE News 13 | Pay It Forward | Scoop.it

AALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) - An Albuquerque business is making sure its workers give back $100 at a time. "It's genuine, sincere and it changed her Thanksgiving for her and her family and it changed me," said Scott Conger.

Pay It Forward HRMG444-14T's insight:

As Americans approach Thanksgiving, a time to be grateful and mindful of those less fortunate, a boss in Albuquerque has instilled the Pay It Forward spirit in his employees by giving them $100 to pass on to someone in need.

 

This scenario has achieved two change objectives: moving employee behaviour (towards the giving mentality / pay it forward attitude) and reducing resistance (by facilitating the means to do so by giving $100 to each employee)

Pay it Forward: Domestic Violence Survivor Gets a Makeover - OzarksFirst.com

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. -- Throughout the month, KOLR-10 is encouraging the community to pay it forward. This is a chance for those in Springfield to receive a gift and then be inspired to pass along the generosity.
Pay It Forward HRMG444-14T's insight:

One benefit of social change movements is that they can create change on an individual, group or organisational level. This case is a good example of a position where there are changing boundaries in the form of strategic alliances. The victim centre aligns with a beauty salon called KOLR10 to give a makeover to a victim of domestic violence.

Pay It Forward HRMG444-14T's insight:

A great video showing real-life scenarios of people paying it forward. Some involve money, and some gestures have no monetary value. Titled "Kindness Boomerang" the clip suggests what goes around comes around.

Gangs fighting child poverty

Gangs fighting child poverty | Pay It Forward | Scoop.it
Sometimes people who have done bad things want a chance to put it right and sometimes life isnt black and white
Pay It Forward HRMG444-14T's insight:

A Pay It Forward initiative happening close to home. The Tribal Huk gang delivers 500 sandwiches to Waikato schools every day, Paying It Forward and changing the negative stereotypes that surround gangs.

 

This hinges on Kurt Lewin's concept of 'unfreezing' the current norms within the gang in order to implement new behaviour.

Letter: Pay it forward

Letter: Pay it forward | Pay It Forward | Scoop.it
Early evening, on Nov. 22, after I had shopped for groceries at Hy-Vee, I couldn’t get my car started. I stopped a man who was going into Hy-Vee and asked if he could help me.
Pay It Forward HRMG444-14T's insight:

A letter to the editor from a lady who needed her car started with jumper leads at a supermarket carpark. 

 

The change agent in this scenario was the man who helped the lady and refused payment, saying "I wouldn’t be setting a very good example for my kids if I accepted money for helping someone that needed help".


This is an example of Lewin's "moving" by rejecting the human response of reciprocity and encouraging paying it forward in the form of helping those in need.
