Pay it Forward Limerick invites you to free events, as we create a wave of kindness during our 4th annual festival.

Be kind, live kindly and share kindness.

Pay it Forward will host their Fourth Limerick Kindness Festival with a number of free events and activities designed to highlight the kindness in every part of Limerick city. During this time a team of volunteers, local businesses and the people of Limerick, who are embracing Pay it Forward, will be busy carrying out intentional acts of kindness.

Being kind to one another acknowledges our own capacity for kindness and also has the benefit of ‘feeling good’ for both giver and receiver. In promoting kindness, PIFL hopes to change attitudes, build self-esteem and mental health resilience, creating a sense of community cohesiveness.

Family Fun Day
Saturday 10th March 11am - 2pm
Bedford Row, Limerick

Fun-filled activities for all the family. 
Face painting, children's crafts, printmaking, animal petting, music and song, kayaking on the Shannon and much more.

Community Unity Days
Sunday 11th - Friday 16th March
All communities of Limerick

From Sunday 11th to Friday 15th, Community Unity Days have been organised to encourage volunteers, local businesses and the people of Limerick to carry out intentional acts of kindness.

This programme of activity will include little gestures such as children baking buns and delivering them to the unsung heroes of the community, handing out flowers on Mother’s Day, showing the Pay It Forward movie, free pampering and massage and talks at local schools. People who receive these acts of kindness will then be encouraged to carry it on in return to someone else, creating the ripple effect.

Visit our website and get involved, or host your own kindness event.
