Beginning in 2020, the first Saturday-Sunday weekends in April and October are PIF Weekends—pay it forward weekends—in PhinneyWood. That’s when the businesses whose logos appear below each give away $150, $5 at a time. Walk into a participating store or restaurant, make a purchase and, if the person behind the cash register gives you a specially marked “kinded” card, you not only receive $5 off what you’re paying for, but get to pass the card along to another customer in the store or restaurant—preferably someone you don’t know—and that customer receives $5 off his/her bill, too.
Random acts of kindness aimed at starting a chain reaction!
Even if you’re not on the receiving end of one of these random acts, participating businesses will have supplies of the “kinded” cards for you to to take and start your own chain reactions.

Note: The intention of PIF Weekends is to spread kindness, but passing along “kinded” cards can also spread the coronavirus. Consequently, 2020’s April PIF Weekend has been cancelled.
