'Paying It Forward' demystified

How does a 'Pay It Forward' (or PIF) work? I can try to explain.

Let's call this first ladybug  The Initiator.
It gives X number of bees a special something, each.
In this case, X = 4.
There are 4 lucky chosen bees.

As a 'pay it forward',
each and every -of the 4- special bee will follow suit,
and send a special something to yet another 4 lucky chosen ladybugs.

Then, each ladybug will send a special something to a further 4 lucky chosen bugs.
So, a 'Pay It Forward' should just go on and on, and on!

So, a P.I.F. is not so scary, is it?


  1. Juanita you're a genius!
