paying it forward… | Leavenworth WA wedding photography

So, every now and again I’m so struck by someone’s act of kindness that, I have to stop and think a little bit about giving and whether I’ve been generous enough with my time, money, etc.

Today, for no reason whatsoever, my neighbor, as he drove down the street, saw that I was walking my dogs to get a coffee. He was on his way to buy his own coffee and before I arrived, he bought my coffee for me! The barista let me know of this little act of generosity and well, it just made my day! And now, friends, I’d like to pass that on to it forward, if you will!

I’m giving away a $25 gift card to the coffee shop of your choice Starbucks, Caffe Mela, Snapdragon, Stumptown, wherever you’d like! All you need to do is:

1) leave a comment below to tell me how you’re going to pay it forward.

2) Make sure you “like” Atlas & Elia Photography on Facebook.

3) And, for an extra chance to win, follow @atlasandelia on Twitter and tweet this: “Tell @atlasandelia how you plan to #payitforward for a chance to win a $25 coffee gift card!” and then tell me what you plan to do there on Twitter!

Make sure you get your comments and tweets posted before midnight PST this Thursday to be entered in the giveaway! I’ll pick the winner at random and announce later this week!

As far as my neighbor, I am trying to think about how to repay him, but that’s the thing, he didn’t do it to get something in return…it was a genuinely altruistic act. Still, I think a plate of homemade cookies will be making its way to their doorstep by the end of the day 🙂
