I assume everyone – at least once in their life – has been at the giving or receiving end of some sort of “Pay-It-Forward” experience. I know I have.
A Coca-Cola Pay It Forward can be anything; something big enough to impact an entire community, or small enough to impact just one person – making their day a whole lot brighter.
Just this morning while getting coffee at the corner store, I experienced a small yet very sweet pay it forward; a lady standing in line behind me offered to buy my coffee. I already had the change out of my purse to pay for it but she insisted I let her buy. That simple act of kindness meant so much to me. It’s brightened my day and gave me ideas on how to pay that kindness forward!
Coca-Cola is giving parents, relatives, friends and mentors -from now thu March 2nd – the chance to nominate an aspiring person, between the ages of 16 & 21, who they feel deserves to be rewarded with a unique and exciting opportunity for an apprenticeship experience (with one of the country’s most respected celebrity history makers: business mongul Magic Johnson; chairman and CEO of BET Networks, Debra Lee; or hip hop artist and philanthropist, Common).
