30 Ways to Take Part in Global Pay It Forward Day ➡️

At Zing we’re all about how little gestures can make a big difference to someone’s day. So, one of our favourite days of the year is Global Pay It Forward Day, a whole 24 hours dedicated to small and random acts of kindness and sharing the love with the next person you meet.  
 All of us at Zing HQ will be spreading the love on the way to work and with our colleagues in an effort to make anyone we pass smile! Any gesture you make today doesn’t have to be grand or expensive, just a simple way to pass on our happiness – smiles are contagious after all. 
 Check out our top 30 suggestions for you to try this #PayItForwardDay: 

1. Send flowers to a friend, colleague, family member or neighbour!

4. Buy or make some office snacks for your colleagues.
