I never expected ePIFanyNow to take off the way it has. We started in 2009 when everyone said Michigan was dying. The economy was tanking and people were suffering. We gathered a group of people to pass kindness forward. After that first meeting, we started to organize more events. Soon, we became a non-profit with the mission of creating a revolution of positive transformational experiences through acts of kindness. We know that when you do something kind for someone else, it’s eventually returned to you! We believe strongly that Mahatma Gandhi was onto something big when he said, “Be the change you want to see in the world.”Each year we also honor local youth passing kindness forward with the annual Y-PIF Award (youth passing it forward) and we will also honor a local HERO making a difference.
