How Pay It Forward Works

CONGRATULATIONS on becoming a community superhero! TrikleTrade offers an online place for you to connect with other members and either pay forward acts of kindness received or simply answer a request for help. Now that you’re here, watch the video to further understand what pay it forward means and then read below to learn how you can get involved.

 

REGISTER AND TELL US ABOUT YOU…

Register and create your personalized profile with content and pictures. The more content you have on your profile, the more members will want to connect with you.

Familiarize yourself with the site. Open all the tabs. There are many ways to get involved.

PAY IT FORWARD…

Click on the Pay it Forward tab and search your area for people who have posted a request or click on a specific topic, like ‘animals’ and view all the requests for that topic across the country. If you can answer a request, click on the listing title and contact the TrikleTrade member by ‘asking a question’. Your private and secure email communications are sent directly to the owner of the listing. Warning! Be respectful. We have security checks in place to report abuse.

OR, if you want to post a pay it forward request, you can do so from the Pay it Forward Message Center conveniently located under the Pay it Forward tab or up in the right hand corner of the screen in your profile box. Once the Pay it Forward Message Center is open, click on the New Generic Listing highlighted in blue. Fill out the information and click save. Don’t forget to upload pictures and post your listing in as many categories as appropriate. It’s fast and fun and can be posted to your favorite social networking site in addition to TrikleTrade.

WHAT’S HAPPENING AND WHO’S INVOLVED….

The Community tab offers several ways to get involved or stay connected. The Community Bulletin Board is an interactive online bulletin board for members to post articles, photos, and videos of interest that inspire or encourage individuals to get involved. It’s a place to share what you've done to help someone in your community or to spotlight an act of kindness you witnessed.

The Find Friends and Organizations is a comprehensive directory of the TrikleTrade members. You can send a ‘friend request’ or ‘follow’ a member. When they post on the bulletin board or post a new listing, you are notified. Friends and followers are the first to know!

MARKET YOUR NON-PROFIT OR ORGANIZATION….

If you work for or manage a non-profit, you can register your organization under the Feature your Organization tab. Fill out the registration form and we do the rest. All requests for help posted under your organization automatically populate to your organization page and to the Pay it Forward categories under the Pay it Forward tab. You get double the exposure.

WE WALK THE TALK…

There are several stories and pictures highlighting these partnerships under the Foundation Projects and Gallery tabs. If you would like us to partner with your organization, please Contact Us.
