Have you ever done anything for a stranger without expecting anything in return? A couple of times I have paid for the car behind me when I've gone to McDonalds. That simple act of giving, gives me such joy.
I was recently contacted by Pampers and asked to participate in their launch of Miracles Missions, in celebration of its 50th birthday. A pay-it-forward program was designed to deliver acts of kindness to little miracles and their families while challenging the public - like you - to support others within your very own communities.
I was sent a $50 American Express gift card from Pampers, with the challenge of performing a random act of kindness and paying the gift card forward to a family in need.
I was super excited to come up with a way to pay my gift card forward. However, the best thing about participating is that Pampers has also given me a $50 American Express gift card to giveaway to one of you, with the challenge of paying it forward as well.
What random act of kindness did I perform? I contacted the Life Care department at my church Lifegate, and requested that the card be given to a family in our church that was, in need and had small children. Pretty cool hugh?
With that said, my question to you my friends is, how would you pay your gift card forward? I will send the card to whoever comes up with the most creative idea. Have fun!
1) Tell me the most creative way you would pay your card forward
2) Follow me here on Blogger or by Email - winner will be verified

Little Miracle Mission
Let’s make a dad's first Father’s Day one he’ll never forget. The mission is to help give dads the time he and his baby deserve to bond.
As it's so critical to his baby's development. Just by running some of his errands, covering his late meeting at work or helping him out with some chores at home can make room for some precious quality time with his little miracle. Pick one or one of your own and tell us how it goes.
For committing to help, you can enter The Little Miracles sweepstakes for a chance to win free diapers and wipes for a year.
If we get 4,000 commitments to complete the mission, Pampers will throw special Father’s Day cook-outs for dads and babies across the country designed to give dads and their babies valuable bonding time. It'll be a day to remember.
