Pay It Forward: “respond to a person’s kindness to oneself by being kind to someone else.”
I originally started training to do this job because I wanted to help people. I’m now doing that and I love it. The sad reality of life is that I need to pay my bills, rent, etc. This means that I need to be paid for my services.
But don’t people with little/no money need nutrition too?
A Facebook post by a local charity, Nite Light CIC, caught my eye:
“True story …. we gave out 5 meal cards in Middlesbrough today. One guy didn’t realise he could exchange our card for a meal so we went with him to exchange it at The Stottie Company in the train station. He was offered the option of eating in or taking away, his response was “I will eat in if it’s not embarrassing for you” We work with organisations that offer kindness and compassion and treat others how you would like to be treated. We want to offer more meals to those struggling and want to support our local businesses that have just opened. We work throughout the Tees Valley. If you can help by buying someone else a meal https://nitelightcic.co.uk/shop/
The compassion shown in this post really touched me.
So, I’m also going to Pay It Forward to help someone have at least one hot meal before they go to sleep at night. Backdated to the beginning of this month, for every client appointment attended from now on, I will make a monthly donation to this charity.
This doesn’t affect the prices that I charge. But it means that YOU will be getting even more value for money! Because it will now be paying for:
- a comprehensive functional medicine consultation, with recommendations being made to support your health from the very first appointment and totally individual to you.
- you will be helping a homeless person to be treated with dignity and have a hot meal
- you will be helping a local business to recover from the recent pandemic lockdown measures
Pay It Forward – It’s a No-Lose situation!
