Pay It Forward


I signed up over at Nadine's blog Friendship Threads to participate in a Pay It Forward Exchange when I first started this blog, a couple of months ago. Unfortunately, at the time, (possibly because it was so close to Christmas?) I did not have anyone that signed up, so I am hoping that now that I've been blogging for a little while, I may have some interest in this exchange. I do realize this exchange has been circulating around blogland for awhile and many of you have already participated in it. For those of you, like me, that haven't had the pleasure of joining in, here's your chance...
This is how it goes : it's the Pay It Forward exchange, based on the concept of the movie "Pay It Forward", where acts of kindness are done without expecting anything in return, just passing it on, hoping that the recipients will do the same and pay it forward, like a never ending chain of kindness...
How to proceed ?
I will make and send a handmade gift for the first 3 friends who post a comment to this post, requesting to join this exchange, and promising to pay it forward to 3 other persons, etc....
I don't know what my 3 gifts will be, and I can't make them in the next few weeks, but I can promise I will send them within the next 6 months .
What YOU have to do in return then, is pay it forward by making the same announcement and promise on YOUR blog.
Sound like fun? I think so! I wonder who will I be sending handmade gifts to???

  1. Whilst I'm not going to commit to this myself, I think it's a great idea. And I loved the movie. Though I cried buckets at the end. Is there a time limit for the pay it forward plan?
