What does everyone else think of the group? I think it was odd that someone ask questions about what they plan on doing with money from fundraiser auction page. They were nasty to that person. Sorry to say everyone has the right to ask what the money is going towards.

its a good site. they have some very good ideas. as far as fundraising and money they need a community board.

I love the idea of giving away free items. To people that have a need for it. But like "heard that to" needs a community board.

I am just asking... instead of throwing other people under the bus, why don't you just go defend yourself on your own threads. It's only when it's about someone else?

R you kidding me. I ask for other people thoughts of the facebook group. There you go again jumping down everyone throats if they have a question about were the funds are going.
One more thing my name is not Lori.

ummm say what you want, but it wasn't me!!! I simply left the group after seeing how Dave was attacked for asking questions. When I was asked by a group member if I was still going to donate items for the auction and told them "no", I now get attacked out here claiming I am starting shit. So whatever makes you feel better and shows the true colors of the group. All Dave & I was saying was: when people ask questions, to be a little more professional with the answers instead of becoming all defensive and snippy. I think it is an awesome way to help people. I started my own group doing the same thing around the same time as the Pay It Forward started. I have offered up things on BOTH sites with good results. All Dave was doing was trying to be helpful making sure all bases were covered since he has experience raising funds for good causes. And all I did was try to point this out to the group. He could have held a benefit utilizing his band with all money going to the group. What's that saying: "Dont bite the hand that feeds ya".
Play Ball- Johnny! I know now you will have to jump right in on this and run rampant again saying shit about me since I showed myself out here. Once again, as I have said before, I WILL post my name out here like he does. I have nothing to hide. I just normally don't have anything to add to this site and do not want to be a part of it either!!!

I hate this site but when people say things that are not true I respond. Niki is not stupid nor is she ripping people off. The group has helped many people. Yes some have been removed from the group for failure to follow the rules. If you don't like what a group on Facebook does then you can choose not to join but don't try to undermined them. This topix group has cost many people grief. I check it now and then just to make sure crap like this gets addressed

Not that anyone really cares what I think, but I DO think pay it forward is a WONDERFUL group, who has done LOTS of great things thus far and I hope they continue to move forward with their non-profit status.
I was only upset and left the group when they replied back to Dave Liles in a not so professional manner. Then when I tried to explain what I thought he was trying to do to help them, they got snippy with me too, so I chose to just leave the group. But I do not have ANYTHING bad to say about the group. I think they just need to be alittle more patient with new members who may not know what all they have already accomplished and what they plan to do in the future. Instead of bashing a "newbie" for not knowing things, take the time to explain it instead of acting like just because they were not a member of the original Pay It Forward group that they do not have anything good to input on the new auction site. Keep up the great work ladies! I commend you. On one last note, always remember that "too many chiefs never work out" !!!

"Pay it foward" is suppose to be a group of kind hearted people. Not rude people who think they know it all and bash other members.
To many chiefs and not enough indians, that's forsure!

Don is a great person who did alot for thr PIF group, without him and Don K. it never would have happened to the extent that it did.

And I have heard it said that there are 1400 people in the group. That is tru but how many of them are actually doing anything? Most of them are not even active and had friends add them without therm even asking. The "chiefs are scaring off all the people that are active and before long it will be non existant.
Nikki acts holier than though and caters to certain friends like cacey and others get booted for doing the same things.
Now they have the auction site that is always on there but "Add" day is only MOn and friday. So goes it for never asking for money in anyway or form. It can only happen if you are one of them.
so over it all now.

Well if you join the group because you are in need of things. Yes it is a good group you will find some one on there willing to help. Now if you go on there to take everything you can get for free and not see that others are in need also or turn around and sell it for profit. Then no because that starts drama. The group trys to do good but because everyone doesn't get their way every time they run their mouth. I am a member I try to stay out of the drama. If I can help I do but I do not post what I have to offer I wait till there is a need so I don't get into the BS. My biggest thing about the group is the greed of some of these people. You help them with a need and every time after it is I want I want I WANT. I want this but I don't have a car or gas money to get it. Sorry it is for free and if you are in need of it so bad you will find a way to get it! Needs are food clothing shelter. Not dvd players, video games, and new items! You are on a thrift store kind of site no the stuff is not new or even like new half the time. IT IS FREE if you are in need you will take what you can get or you really don't NEED it that bad. So in my opinion yes it is a good site but you have to set your own rules so you don't get sucked into the drama. For the money situation I say if you donate money you should trust they are spending it on what they say. That means don't cry afterwards and demand answers and instead of waiting on the right person to answer listen to group members who have no clue or right to answer. Money raised goes toward group activities mainly focused around needy kids and families around holidays. I do agree that the group leaders need a little more structure but they are just starting! Never heard of any place group or company being perfect or pleasing everyone right out the gate! Hope this helps kind of long and rambling but that is my 2 cents!

Agree 110% about the people that wants delivery service! Its crap that they can't find a ride or claim they don't have car. Real reason is they Probley don't want to waste there gas.
The site does have way to people that act like they are in charge. One of the reasons why I left the site. They need an attitude adjustment.
agree
