Pay it Forward Maine

Pay It Forward Maine asks individuals, businesses and organizations to continue supporting local businesses and their employees in our new world of closed storefronts and social distancing.
We greatly encourage you to join us as we #PayItForwardMaine by considering the following ways to show your support.
  • Buy a gift card, gift certificate - this may be the simplest and most effective way to continue supporting local businesses throughout this crisis. Think of a business you would have visited that day/week/month and buy a gift card instead! Keep it for yourself OR give it as a gift.
  • Utilize take-out and curbside to-go services.
  • Purchase merchandise from the business’ website – obviously retail locations, but many businesses and organizations in all industries offer merchandise such as clothing, hats, glassware, posters, and more. Buy online and have it shipped to your door!
If you can’t afford to show monetary support, share the website or social media account of your favorite business or organization and encourage others to support them.
help us make this into a statewide movement by sharing your posts, photos, and actions with the hashtag #PayItForwardMaine. Tag your family, friends, and followers and challenge them to do the same. The more visibility, the more people will get involved!
