On March 28th at 4 p.m. in Newport, Oregon you are invited to take part in the world’s first globally coordinated book reading flash mob. Held at Newport Public Library, this is a chance to share a favorite book and pay your love of books and reading forward.
All you need to do is bring a book that inspired you in some way, take some time to reflect on how that book inspired you and also reflect on how a random act of kindness has the potential to change someone else’s life. Now more than ever in these tough financial times we need to help and be kind to each other and you can become part of a global movement helping to make the world a kinder place.
The event has been put together by the Pay It Forward Foundation to raise awareness of the impact that small, random acts of kindness can have on people and to encourage people to Pay It Forward. Charley Johnson, President of the Pay it forward Foundation says “We realise that change starts with us, and for this reason, we believe that it is a simple thing that everyone can do to remind people that the world is still an amazing place and that others still do care.”
Rebecca Cohen, organizer of Newport Public Library’s flash mob says “We know that serving others has the power to create change. Real change! You can make a difference today, no need to be a celebrity or millionaire. Be the change you want to see in the world. Understanding that a small act of kindness can shift someone’s perspective on life is the reality we live in. Help us share the message, the outcome will give purpose and meaning to everyone involved.”
