Gave the dollar I received to a musician on the street who was playing Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas, one of my favorite songs.

While running errands, one of my coworkers bought a soda for me and instead of letting me repay her back, she just said "Merry Christmas!". I'm putting that money in the envelope and will be passing it along!

Very cool idea. I am putting the $1.00 in the collection at church this weekend to help buy meals for kids in Haiti. Thank you!

I think the point is not to just donate the dollar. It is to add another dollar, pass it to a friend, they add another dollar and so on and so forth until the envelope gets big enough and reaches someone who really needs the cash inside... whatever amount. Sound more fun and exciting than just giving the dollar away. Build it up people!

I received an envelope, passed it to another co-worker to add to it, and she passed to another...... we ended up putting the money in the Salvation Army kettle.
Great idea... keep it going... and keep it growing!!

Love this! Rushing out of work, I was handed an envelope and only later realized what it was. Rekindles that holiday spirit in the best way! I added to it and passed it along. Happy holidays!

I got out of my car after lunch to return to work and a young boy ran up to me and gave me one of the envelopes. There were 5 one dollar bills in it. I was so touched by this. We added 3 more dollars to the envelope and are passing it on. When I went home and told my husband about it, he agreed that we should make up some envelopes and pass them on! Since I have to work today, he will be handing out the envelopes today.

Went to church and a friend handed me the envelope. I had never seen it before. I thought it was a cool idea. We have had a hard year. God works in mysterious ways! Thank you for the cool idea around the holiday!

Greatly appreciated it!

Shared this story with my congregation, and one of my congragants sat on the idea for awhile and decided she wants to start it here in our small town of Clintonville WI (4000 folks). Will be interested to see how if goes. Any feed back from this will be helpful as we set up her program.

Sitting at my desk today at 10:45 or so and receptionist dropped off a manilla envelope with my name written from one end to the other. Odd. I open it to find yet another envelope with the 'HolidayItForward.Org flyer stapled to the outside with "For [my sons name]" written on it. He's a 31 yr old Army OEF vet recently diagnosed with Stage 4 Hodgkins Lymphoma, half-way through aggressive chemo - father of a 3 yr old and a 5 mth old. Whoever you folks are, thank you! From my heart - the heart of a military mom - thank you! And to the Iraqi Veteran who began this, thank YOU for your service to our Country!
