The mission of ePIFanyNow™ is to create a revolution of positive, transformational experiences through acts of kindness. We are a grassroots movement, with no religious or political affiliations, endeavoring to create positive change throughout our community and beyond.

The name ePIFanyNow™ is unique, but the concept is simple and very old. Since 2009 there have been dozens of ePIFanyNow™ events. The idea started with a personal epiphany; it feels good to be kind to others and when you share your story it intensifies the emotion.

My hope is that you find uplifting information at ePIFanyNow.org; ideas on how to pass kindness forward in your own life. You are also invited to join our events – and even plan your own events in your community. You too can have an epiphany right now; just decide to focus on making a positive difference for someone else and let us know what you did.

The Y-PIF Award (youth passing it forward) was started in 2015 to honor youth who are passing kindness forward and making a positive contribution to their communities. It is an opportunity for youth to get recognition and added funding for their youth-led activities/projects that provide an in-kind service to others and make a positive contribution to their communities.

ePIFanyNow™ was featured on the national CBS Evening News with Scott Pelley in February 2012. Below is the report that ran on CBS as well as a report that ran on the local CBS affiliate station WLNS TV-6.
