Some Good From Hurricane Sandy

Who has made a positive impact in your life? Make sure they have help when they need it most.

“Life isn’t fair” is a pretty common expression that definitely has some truths to it. But what if life could be fairer? There is a new concept gaining momentum that can help make that happen. It is called the Repay Someday project and it was started because the expression “life isn’t fair” became much too apparent in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy.

The story behind the project is explained in detail on this website. But, in a nutshell, it is about a very generous, caring, giving man who throughout his life helped countless people. Over time he slowly lost touch with a majority of them. After a lifetime of giving and helping others, he was left to fend for himself after the destruction of Sandy directly impacted his home. 

Repay Someday lets a person “pay it back by pledging to forward” for anyone who is making or has made a positive impact in your life. And people receiving a pledge can “do well by doing good,” not by having money in the bank to deal with a future crisis, but instead by having pledges from people ready to help them when they need it the most.

Make sure those who have made a positive impact in your life have the help they need when they need it the most, RepaySomeday.com.
