Most media today seems focused on bad news and people’s failures. Negativity is so 2016. Why share shade when you can share shine? Tweet the change you want to see in the world!

  1. Post to your favourite social network acknowledging someone inspiring in your life. Make sure they know you think they rock. Tag them and include #CastItForward in your post on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram.
  2. Visit CastItForward.org to see the latest “casts” or search for #CastItForward on your favourite social network to see all the posts from people giving props. (Before this started the hashtag had been used one time on Twitter. Let’s see how many powerful posts we can create!)
  3. It someone profiles you in a post, make sure to Cast It Forward! Acknowledge and mention someone else you feel deserves some love (by mentioning them in the comments or a reply and including #CastItForward). This will help keep track of where a particular thread started and where it went.

See some of the latest “casts”.

When you Cast It Forward, you give acknowledgement and gratitude to someone who has inspired you to be a better person, a funnier person, a faster person, a kinder person. Then, get to acknowledge someone inspiring to them, and so on and so on. As the chain grows, so does the stoke. Think of it as a feel-good chain letter.

I am feeling inspired and want to record a podcast.

Register for the Cast It Forward Script and follow the instructions. A CIF Cast gives you more time to share more information about the person who inspires you. We take care of the heavy lifting, posting your interview to Soundcloud and iTunes. You get to be the reporter, sharing an interview that will make the world act, cry, laugh or all of the above.

Because everyone works with the CIF Script, our listeners can connect through a familiar format with each episode. But that doesn’t mean there won’t be surprises. Each conversation will have its own blend of humour, emotion, and inspiration.

Follow these steps to kick-off your cast.

Don’t miss any of the inspiring conversations. Sign-up below to join the castmmunity and subscribe on iTunes.
