FLOAT IT FORWARD - Officially Starting at the 2015 Portland Float Conference

Float It Forward - Pay It Forward

Did you attend the 2015 Float Conference from August 13th to the 16th in Portland? If so, you probably got one of our envelopes with a crisp new $5 bill inside. What's the catch? Well it's simple, we ask that you spend it on someone other than yourselves. Have fun, send out some good Karma, and float on dudes...

Are you the recipient of the float it forward movement in some shape or form? If so, feel free to continue floating it forward and don't forget to hashtag #floatitforward and #sfsalt

A major U.S. specialty salt supplier will be giving each attendee of the conference $5 dollars with the hope that they will use the money for a kind gesture or act of goodwill towards a complete stranger.

San Francisco, CA, August 11, 2015 /PR Newswire/ -- San Francisco Salt Company (SFSC) is “Floating it forward” at the Portland, OR Float Conference this weekend (August 15-16).  By providing each of the 500 conference attendees $5 dollars, SFSC will be proposing that each person spends the money on someone other than themselves while spending time in Portland during the annual float conference. 

“The Float Conference is the perfect venue to share this idea with,” says Lee Williamson, owner of the San Francisco Salt Company. “The conference is an eclectic group of open-minded, free thinking, creative, spiritual, and salt of the earth people and I have no doubt that they will embrace the idea and put their $5 dollars to good use.”

Williamson goes on to explain, “Recently, a car ahead of me paid my toll on the Bay Bridge in San Francisco.  I was stunned and elated. This was a total stranger that I never got to thank.  So to pass along the good karma, I paid the toll for the person behind me. The interesting thing is, although it felt good to get my toll paid, it felt even better paying someone else’s toll.

“Because we are a sponsor of the Float Conference, I wanted to share the idea of ‘floating it forward’ with everyone attending and inject my sense of fun into an already very entertaining conference. Our hope is that this specific act of ‘floating’ it forward will continue on long after the conference.”

SFSC is a major supplier of U.S. Pharmaceutical Grade Epsom Salt, a key component to the success of Floating. The Portland Float Conference is the largest event for the Float Community, designed for anyone and everyone interested in float tanks and floatation therapy. It is organized and run by Ashkahn Jahromi and his team at Float On, trailblazers and pioneers in world of floating.

Floatation Therapy was first introduced in 1954 by Dr. John C. Lilly.  His studies and experiments were based on the human response to sensory deprivation.  Although floating has been around for quite some time, it has seen exponential growth within the last few years and is one of the fastest growing niche business’s in the U.S.A.
