Affinity Plus seeking collaboration partners in 2016 Plus It Forward Day

Plus it Forward, a spin on the widely popular concept of Pay it Forward, was created by Affinity Plus Federal Credit Union in 2013 with the intent selecting one day out of the year to scatter kindness in communities throughout Minnesota – and encourage others to do the same. This year’s Plus It Forward Day will be held on Monday, Oct. 10 (Columbus Day), and all credit unions are invited to participate!

Last year, this day was expanded to include 13 other credit unions around the state, creating an amazing ripple effect of kindness felt by so many. The collective impact – as illustrated in this infographic – was as follows:

  • nearly 1,000 credit union employees …

  • dedicated more than 6,200 total volunteer hours to scatter kindness in their communities …

  • impacting more than 18,000 people …

  • in 36 communities (along with an indeterminable amount of community members; food recipients from Feed My Starving Children; and law enforcement & military families across the country) …

Participation in Plus It Forward Day is very customizable and turn-key, from the activities you select, what you call it, and whether your credit union is open or closed on this day. Additional information is available in a 30-minute overview recording on the Plus It Forward “collaboration” website at

With questions or to commit to participating in Plus It Forward Day 2016, please contact Kristina Wright from Affinity Plus at
