Have you ever wondered how the things you do can affect other people around you? Have you ever just smiled at a random person and changed their day entirely? Patch It Forward is a system that enables people to spread good thoughts to the people around them. It is a way to break the boundaries between strangers and make somebody’s day. Enabling you to actively influence daily life by sharing patches and seeing the good travel.
It starts by getting a patch, whether you buy one or receive one. The patches have different messages on them. Once you get a patch, you scan the barcode on the back with the app, and pass it on to someone else. By scanning the barcode, you tag where the patch is in the world and add yourself to its virtual log. Doing so allows you to see where patches you’ve scanned have travelled and how you can change someone’s day by reaching out and patching it forward.
