The 2013-2014 Ankeny Leadership Institute is excited to launch Inspire Ankeny – a Pay It Forward campaign aimed at igniting the giving spirit of Ankeny. Through social media and participation from local leaders, businesses, non-profit organizations and schools, the campaign will encourage community-wide involvement in random acts of kindness. The campaign challenges the residents of Ankeny, and the Greater Des Moines area, to join together during the month of April to Pay It Forward.

The Ankeny Leadership Institute has recruited more than 40 community members as Inspire Ankeny Ambassadors who are charged with spreading the Pay It Forward message and completing their own Pay It Forwards throughout the month of April. 

The campaign will be heavily promoted during the month of April with the hope that it will continue for many months.
