Isn’t it amazing, how cultural icons, particularly western ones are so easily transportable across nations, no matter how remote and isolated they may have been?

As we travelled through Central Asia, we certainly didn’t expect to see a Guns n’ Roses Bar & Grill (with the exact same logo), a sculptural tribute to the Beatles, and Spiderman hanging out, on top of a café. For the life of me, I don’t have a clue how they ended up in Almaty, Kazakhstan, a post-Soviet country.

As we were reflecting on 2011 – we thought to ourselves, wouldn’t it be great if kindness could travel as quickly and easily as these icons. In the new year, do remember those amongst us who need a hand, a small word of encouragement, or a boost.

We hope you enjoy this Pay It Forward video (click this link if unable to see image below) as much as we did.

Wishing you and your family a wonderful 2011 - may you enjoy great health and prosperity!
Pay it Forward 2012
