FSGF handed out over $1000, in gift cards to random Wal-Mart shoppers during our “Pay It Forward” Campaign. Giving is a gift and an act of kindness that can last a life time. FSGF teaches the values and beliefs of good citizenship, caring for others and being leaders in the community. In December, Future Stars Global Foundation took a group of its student athletes to a local Wal-Mart and surprised random shoppers by handing our gift cards, with the thought if you can use the gift card use it and if you know someone else who really could use it then “Pay It Forward” and keep the gift of kindness going. Our student athletes learn many lessons, and as they learned at WalMart, the gift isn’t always the one you receive but the gift you give from the heart. FSGF continues to teach and instill these values in all of the children that are part of our the programs and in the community.
The “Pay It Forward” campaign helped several people, who greeted out surprise with smiles or tears in their eyes. It was truly a humbling and spectacular movement, which we plan to continue as often as we can.
