Consider This-PIF

PIF, the abbreviation for a phenomenon called "Pay It Forward," basically means
asking that a good deed be repaid by having it done to others instead of being repaid to the giver.
Etsy has it's own PIF phenomenon occurring. Sellers on etsy with PIF listings usually charge a very small amount for the PIF item. Why would anyone want to do this? Well, it makes for good karma. Someone stumbles upon something listed for 20 cents and can't believe the generosity they've encountered. That experience can change the course of a person's day and create a ripple effect of good vibes that grow exponentially.
What can YOU do to pay it forward?
