HGB invites the community to its ePIFanyNow “Pass it Forward” party at AL!VE

Charlotte, Mich. – AL!VE is hosting an ePIFanyNOW “Pass it Forward” party from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m., Sunday, May 6. This public, family-friendly event is free.

The idea of an ePIFanyNow party is to gather a large group of people together and send them into the community to spread kindness.

"When people arrive at these generosity celebrations they are given 100 ideas on ways to spread kindness through a variety of good deeds," said Barbara Fulton, HGB director of community and organizational development. "A few hours later they come back to share stories of how they passed it forward … it’s powerful to hear how the simplest gestures can have the biggest impact on a stranger."

The ePIFanyNow event begins at 2 p.m. at AL!VE, 800 W. Lawrence Ave., in Charlotte, Mich. Participants arrive at 2 p.m. and by 2:30 p.m. are given ideas and sent into the community. They will return to AL!VE between 4:30 p.m. and 5 p.m. to enjoy refreshments and share stories.

Everyone is invited to participate in the family-friendly event. Call 517.541.5805 to register. The celebration is not religious or politically-based. There have been more than 10 “Pass it Forward” parties in the community with more than 2,000 people passing kindness forward. ePIFanyNow was recently recognized nationally by CBS News for the positive impact its having locally.
