Exemplar Financial Network's Walworth office selected 26 people for a pay it forward initiative. Each person was given $50 to give toward a random act of kindness and in return send a note to Exemplar stating how the money was used.
The Team at Exemplar Financial Network (Financial Advisors, Stephen Werner , Jacob A. Ries and Heidi Alten with Client Services Director, Alyssa Erickson) recently chose 26 people in the community and gave them $50 with a note that said
"We are asking you to join Exemplar in kicking off 2014 with Random Acts of Kindness. Pay It Forward with the enclosed gift by helping a local family, charity, or cause dear to your heart. We would love to hear your story by returning a small note to add to our office Random Acts of Kindness bulletin board"
The response to the program was impressive. Heartfelt stories keep pouring in. Everything from assisting local families going through a rough time to donations to community non-for-profits and even one story of an 8 year old who wanted to give donations to the food pantry instead of receiving birthday gifts.
"We wanted to do something different and special with our clients to kick off 2014. We chose to promote Random Acts of Kindness and the response was tremendous! I couldn't believe the stories we received and the many uses of the funds we sent out. This will definitely become and annual project for us!" ~ Jacob A. Ries, Financial Advisor.
