Pay it Forward

It's amazing how a simple act of kindness can restore your faith in humanity. Someone held the elevator door during the morning rush? The world is beautiful. A card from a friend just because? Heart explodes. This cloth-bound journal is designed to bring a little of that joy—on both sides of the good deed—to you and the 11 others who receive it. Here"s how it works:

1. Register your journal and be the first to record a little about yourself (e.g. who you look up to, where your grandparents are from).

2. Pick a recipient for your act of good—friend, co-worker, total stranger—then do it! Could be an activity, could be a gift, could be as simple as a compliment.

3. Give the journal to them to repeat the goodness. Once the last person has completed their entry, they send the book back to you. Warning: You may experience all the feels.

“I was in a plane crash today,” Adam Benton wrote his family on a November day in 2010. He was on a photo shoot in Africa when the gyrocopter he was in fell from the sky. “I realized I needed to do more in my life.” A self-described adventurer with “a fondness for pencils and dirt roads,” Adam now creates journals that inspire others to explore the good in their own worlds. He lives with his wife and daughter in Kansas City.
