Doc Compton feels so great after giving to others and wants others to experience the gift of giving.  He started a “pay it forward” campaign by filling 100 envelops with a $1 bill with the message, “Keep this if you need it, or add to it and pass it on.”

After distributing the envelops to strangers at the Dallas Arboretum on Sunday, he has already gotten a huge response on his website and the members on the Facebook page are steadily growing with support.

He came up with the idea of Need It, Keep It after giving $10 to a couple he saw outside a store who were in need, and felt great after helping them out. He commented:

“There are so many things that go viral, so many inane things with no social impact. I thought, ‘What if we could make something like this go viral and get big and in so doing change some people?’ It’s not about the money; it’s not about whose hands the money ultimately lands in. It’s about the hands along the way that get to experience the gift of giving.”

To join is his “pay it forward” campaign, visit his website of Facebook page and join in on the cause!
