Pay it Forward

Maybe you're not looking to just improve your life, but also the lives of others. The Pay it Forward app is great for that.

Every day, the app sends you a suggestion for a random act of kindness. It tells me to put a quarter in a meter that is about to expire. (If only somebody would have done that for me, that time in L.A...)

Tomorrow, give a pair of shoes to somebody in need. You can also suggest a deed. Check out the world map and leaderboard to keep tabs on nice things done throughout the world.

Make 2013 a good year...for everyone.

The free app is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad, but requires iOS 5.0 or later.
