Pray It Forward

Someone reached out to you with an act of kindness. DON’T PAY IT BACK, PAY IT FORWARD. Do something nice for three people that you don’t know, and ask them to do something nice for three more people. American University of Health Sciences students have an opportunity to outreach to the homeless community to talk, to pray, to provide hope and give $5 in donations.

“When the opportunity to do “Pray it Forward” arose, I was very eager to take the chance as my first community service activity here at AUHS. Despite my excitement, I felt nervous at the thought of speaking to strangers. However, the scenario of my first encounter made me think otherwise. My first 5 dollar bill and prayer was given to a homeless woman in a wheelchair. When I offered the lady five dollars, she was incredibly thankful and very willing to take a photo. She was curious about the activity and what school I attended, so I explained to her the mission and philosophy of AUHS.” – April Garnacias, AUHS Student
