Kindness Forward - Brightwing


Brightwing is celebrating 40 years by spreading kindness forward!

Let us know how you pay it forward! With a 40 year legacy built upon a foundation of People-Centricity we have decided to give back, and want to challenge you to do the same. How would you celebrate your 40th birthday?


A lavish hollywoodesque party?  Hire Jay-Z to perform for your closest 300 friends.  What about something more intimate, like dinner with friends and family at your favorite restaurant.   What about a 10 day retreat to your favorite destination?  Mexico, Fiji, maybe skiing in Colorado?


I can tell you that we had thought of it all.  And then we came to our senses.


For Brightwing, the last 40 years has been a glorious, humbling, educating, inspiring and at times trying journey.  Reflecting back, we realized that there have been so many truly wonderful people that have contributed to our evolvement and success.  We have touched many people that have given so much of themselves to see us thrive and prosper.

We want to see how far a quarter will go. Share your story!

I found your envelope at macomb community college. I removed the envelope then proceeded to tape three envelopes to different vending machines with $2 in each of them with a note saying to pay it forward.

Finding a good job these days is a lot about who you know.

I have utilized my LinkedIn connections to help myself, my family and friends find jobs.

So I am trying to start a bit of a LinkedIn Movement.

What inspired me to do this is the movie Pay It Forward.

I’m a big movie buff.

I’m also very passionate about marketing and helping people find jobs.

So I combined it all and came up with J9’s Pay It Forward Networking Group.

Here’s how it works. If you are looking for work or have an available position, send me a message or submit a post in the job or discussion sections and I will do what I can to help.

This isn’t a service I charge for, just something I’m doing to help people out.

All I ask in return is that you pay it forward and help a connection of yours and then they have to help one of theirs, and so on and so on.

Make sense? Alright…lets get started! 🙂
