TrikleTrade, the Pay it Forward Network, provides people with an opportunity to offer or request an item or service. When an item or service is received, return and pay it forward to another TrikleTrade member. Create a pay it forward offer or answer another member's listing.
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 information about yourself and a profile picture. The more information you have on your profile, the more members will want to connect with you.
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’.
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.
WHAT’S HAPPENING AND WHO’S INVOLVED….
The Community Bulletin Board is an interactive online bulletin board for members to post articles, photos, and videos of interest that inspire others 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!
GAIN EXPOSURE FOR YOUR NONPROFIT OR ORGANIZATION….
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.
WE WALK THE TALK…

There are several stories and pictures highlighting these partnerships under the Foundation Projects and Gallery tabs. Our last project was a collaboration with TOMS Shoes and Electric Lodge.
