This March the Irish city of Limerick will host the fifth edition of a very unusual 8-day event: the Pay it Forward Kindness Festival. Between 9th and 16th of March 2019, several free events on the theme of kindness and giving will happen around the Irish city. These include a big Family Fund Day on the first festival day on Bedford Row, pamper day and of course – free music alongside the festive activities.
Naturally, the festival comes into being thanks to the charitable work of over 100 volunteers but also a growing number of businesses, among which Bus Eireann, Starbucks and EBS. The idea of the festival is not only to showcase acts of kindness, but to inspire and motivate continuous change of behaviour. This way, Pay if Forward Limerick sets the objectives to transform attitudes, contribute to building higher self-esteem and mental health resilience, whereby forging a sense of community and cohesiveness among its residents and their guests.
