The Ear bets you didn’t know that Thursday is PAY IT FORWARD DAY. What’s it all about? The website,, explains it’s “about all people, from all walks of life giving to someone else and making a positive difference.”

This year, the Pay It Forward Day folks ambitiously hope to inspire five million “acts of kindness around the world.” Some people have started early, but sadly, the Ear doesn’t see any good deeds posted by Oregonians on the Kindness Map. Hopefully that will change on April 25.
