Pay It Forward | The Giving Keys

Whenever it is time to purchase a gift for someone, I always lean towards getting something meaningful. I like to think of what that person likes and enjoys because seeing the joy when they receive the gift is priceless!

What touches people the most is not necessarily the present itself, but the thought that went behind it. In actuality, my reason for giving meaningful gifts is to let that person know that they are valuable, loved, and thought of.

The vibrant, Katrina, from We Are F.A.S.H.I.O.N. is full of words of life over at her blog. She described how she received a very special gift that she later ended up giving to someone else to pass on the same sentiments of faith, hope, and love she felt upon receiving it.

Katrina then introduced a company that makes products specifically to pay it forward to someone else; The Giving Keys.

The Giving Keys started with a vision actress and singer/songwriter, Caitlin Crosby, had for humanity to unite in reaching those in need of uplifting.

Watch the following video to hear Caitlin’s story in her own words:

The Giving Keys are used keys that are repurposed with an inspiring word engraved on it. The idea is for the wearer of the key to eventually pass it on to someone they feel needs the message more than they do.

The giving keys selfless key story, I chose the word selfless for her key, I chose the word because, well, that's what she is
From The Giving Keys site

Countless people have shared their Pay It Forward stories where they express what led them to give away their key. The stories are very heart warming and you can read some of them here.

The Giving Keys also pays it forward within their office by employing individuals transitioning out of homelessness.

Caitlin and everyone behind The Giving Keys,

You are shining stars!!

Continue to let your light reach the depths of a world in need of more people like you!

  1. Not only a wonderful idea but how touching that the company employees the homeless. This is how you selflessly give back and I hope this company makes it very far with their vision. I would definitely buy from them!
