Pay it forward in the name of #Autism Awareness

I want to issue a challenge to everyone that reads this site.  This is pretty simple and it doesn’t have to cost you a thing.  Having said that, it can really make a difference in the world.

Pay it forward. 

Basically, what that means is do something nice for someone else, with no strings attached and with no expectations of them returning the favor to you.  Instead, the only thing that you ask of them in return, is to pay it forward to someone else.

Maybe you pay for someone’s food while in line at the drive thru. Perhaps, you shovel a neighbors driveway or sidewalk.  You could also simply donate a smile and a kind word to someone who could really use it. 

There are literally millions of ways to pay it forward.

If you take up this challenge, you will be helping me to make the world a better place, one person at a time. 

If someone asks why your doing this, simply tell them that you are paying it forward in the name of Autism Awareness. Ask them to pay it forward to someone else and maybe share with them why Autism Awareness is so important to you. 


I would love to hear about your adventures.  Let me know how people react to this.  I’ll share mine as well. 

We can be a shining example for not only the Autism Community but the world as well.  🙂

Good luck.  Be smart.  Stay safe.

As a mother of a son with Aspergers and savant in music…also, being an advocate for my son & others over 29 years now…I want to applaud your challenge in doing kind deeds to others, which is very much neglected nowadays!  I think that is an awesome way to bring attention to Autism Awareness…I have actually been doing it for a long time doing kind deeds to other but didn’t do it in the name of Autism Awareness!
What a special person you are to come up with this idea…I have a Autism Awareness store where I sell jewelry & other things.. if you would like to check it out…this month I am giving away a free pair of Autism Awareness earrings to whoever comments on my web page at:   What a great example for everyone involved!  Keep up the good work!    Linda Cucek

HI Rob, just wanted to send a quick note to say thanks for issuing this challenge. Kindness, or paying it forward seems to have gone by the wayside these days. My daughter is living with deaf autism, so I understand your families challenges. I also wanted to let you know this is what I’ve done > I grabbed your button and added it to our blog, you can find it here  I also added you to our resource board with a link back to this post. What I would also like to do with your permission is create a post regarding your family and have it go out on our blog in the next couple of weeks. If this is of interest to you please connect with me on LinkedIn.
Blessings to you and your family….as the journey continues…. Kimberly McGuiness, Founder/CEO, Julia’s World Project


@Kimberly McGuiness wow. I’m totally honored. I will do that. Thanks..
