Limerick Pay It Forward Days Launched

Pay It Forward Limerick was launched on March 8th , This is a movement by a group of volunteers whose aim is to promote Limerick, its communities and its people in the most positive light possible.  Bertie, the Saint Bernard, was the guest of honour at the launch in Ard Scoil Mhuire, Secondary School in Corbally, Limerick with Jan O’ Sullivan, TD and Minister for Education.

The group believe there is an inbuilt goodness in people.  People carry out acts of kindness, compassion and support every day. Sometimes for friends and family and other times for complete strangers. Pay It Forward suggests that if someone does you a good deed, instead of paying it back you “Pay It Forward” by helping someone else. The Pay It Forward Limerick organisation wants to make Limerick the kindest city in Ireland.

The movement will have a festival of kindness from later this week in the city including a family day  in Bedford Row City centre. The public will browse through the tents arranged by the 12th Infantry Battalion, Sarsfield Barracks Limerick.
