In the spirit of the PIPS model enabling members to become financially independent and to assist those less fortunate than ourselves, the PIPS Pay It Forward program has been designed for members to open a PIPS account for underprivileged people around the world.


1. You identify a person in need.

2. You create a $450 PIPS account for that underprivileged person. (Go to your own log in page, it will come up as the first page in the members area)

3. The account is flagged as a Pay It Forward account and is set on a 60/40 plan.

4. The receiving member owning the account will be able to view the account but will not be able to access the account for transactions until it has reached the Pay It Forward AF value of $450.

5. When the Pay It Forward AF value has been reached the member will then be able to create a PIPS Pay It Forward account for another underprivileged person.

6. Once the new Pay It Forward account has been created the member will then have full access facilities to their own account.

The PIPS Pay It Forward program ensures a steady growth of funds and enables you as a PIPS member to help those in need. Please click on the button located in your members area to share your success with an underprivileged person.

Grateful's Note(s):

The 60/40 Plan is the only option for the PIF plan until after the person has completed steps 5 & 6.

This week I received a wonderful gift from God through a man named Bill. I now have a PIPS account and my life is going to change for the better. I was at a very low point about a week ago and was ready to give up on ever trying to get into PIPS. I received a private message with an offer to help me with an account. I am so thankful for the help I got.

I also received many words of encouragement and many more offers to help me get started. I even got an offer to add some extra units to my new account. Life is like a box of chocolates?you never know what you?re going to get! Very Happy

There are so many wonderful, caring people here. I just can?t express how thankful I am and how happy I am to be a PIPSTER! Dancing

I have made a commitment to do the same for someone who needs help as soon as I am able to. I wouldn?t have it any other way.

Thank you, to all of you who helped me and gave me words of encouragement. You have restored my faith in the fact that anything is possible and that even I deserve good things too.

I am very excited and looking forward to the ride and to being a part of this special family! Here?s to many great things ahead!! Dancing

I must thank PI, PIPS, Bryan and all the PIPS
pioneer members who helped
me during this past year through our financial
and health disasters. All of you have been more
like a family to me. I will be forever grateful for the
acts of kindness and words of encouragement.

For those of you who are not familiar with my

My husband (Dave) sustained a back injury at
work on June 2002 and after a year of medical
treatment with not much improvement; his
employer of the last 20 years told him in June 2003
that they "no longer had a position for him and
could not accommodate him".

Dave has a permanent partial disability from that injury.

In July 2003 I discovered that I had early breast
cancer so I had surgery done in October 2003. The
cancer treatments that I chose were a low dose
chemotherapy (IPT) and most of the cost was NOT
covered by insurance since it was considered to be
a blend of traditional/natural care. I chose IPT
since it treats the entire body/source of the cancer
in addition to not being as harmful to the healthy
cells. Since I was the only income earner in the family
I could not miss work either.

The treatments were in Chicago, Illinois USA which
Is a very long drive for us. We found the organization
called Angel Flight, they are a group of pilots who volunteer
their time and airplanes to fly patients anywhere in
the USA who have financial troubles.

I had some e-mail contact at first with Paul M and
told him what happening with our family. Paul M
and Michael R started the barbarajean cancer fund
which many of you contributed into (including Bryan)
so that I could begin my IPT treatments.

My final treatment was done 1-29-2004 and now I have
had 9 monthly blood tests which have all been normal.
My family physician back at home has recently confirmed
that all other tests with my physical exam have returned as
normal. I could not be happier with the help you have given
me AND with the outcome of my health. I will continue the
blood tests for the next 4 ? years.

Dave had difficulty finding any work for a long period
of time since he cannot do physical labor and has no
specialized training for other work. After a year of searching
he found a non-labor type of job in June 2004 and even
though his earnings are much less than before;
we are happy that he found the job and he is working
with a great bunch of people.

Paul M and Michael R then created the friends22
account in order to pay back any of the kind people who
had donated to my cancer fund and who expected a refund.
After they were paid back the friends22 account will
go on to help others who are in financial trouble through no fault
of their own and who have no other means of assistance.

These two gentlemen are wonderful and I understand
they are assisting others with friends22 funds.

It will take us a while yet to recover from our past
two years of financial troubles but now with PIPS at our side;
we actually have a chance and will start catching up
in 2005!!!!

Someday I hope to meet and thank all of you wonderful
people who have made such a difference in my life!

Two years ago I was worried sick all the time and now
