‘Pay it for­ward’ to help some­one need­ing a lift

Matamata Chronicle - - News - By NI­COLA STE­WART ni­cola.ste­wart@wrcn.co.nz

Mata­mata’s Gloss Beauty is tak­ing part in a global move­ment to in­spire acts of kind­ness.

The idea is to pay it for­ward – to do good deeds for oth­ers with­out ask­ing any­thing in re­turn ex­cept that they do some­thing for some­one else.

Gloss will this week be hand­ing out a hun­dred free vouch­ers to in­di­vid­u­als and busi­nesses in Mata­mata.

Those peo­ple will then be asked to hand the vouch­ers on to a per­son they think de­serves it most.

When the re­cip­i­ent uses the voucher, the per­son that passed it on to them will go in the draw to win a pam­per package.

Gloss owner Lisa van Dyk said it was a way the busi­ness could do some­thing nice for the com­mu­nity.

‘‘We thought it would be a great way to give some­thing back and to en­cour­age the power of giv­ing,’’ she said.

‘‘Whether that be to a friend or client who is go­ing through a dif­fi­cult time or some­one who just de­serves some­thing nice for them­selves.’’

Treat­ments of­fered will and makeup ses­sions.

‘‘We would like to make this an an­nual event,’’ Ms van Dyk said.

‘‘We would love to see other busi­nesses get in­volved.’’
