***Pay It Forward*** | which can be described as a charitable pyramid scheme, based on good deeds rather than profit. "Paying it forward" means the recipient of a favor does a favor for a third party rather than paying the favor back.
Do a favor for three people, asking each of them to return the favor by doing favors for three other people, and so on, along a branching tree of good deeds.
Problems solved on a global viral level.
Is this possible on a global scale?

I believe so, yes! When I do something that someone else thanks me for, I will sometimes say: "just pay it forward" in the hopes that they'll (a) understand what it means, and (b) do something nice for someone else.
