Paying it forward!

I read about this on some blogs and was always to late to subscribe, but finally I got in through Nic's and Judith's blog. Well, actually I missed the fun at Judith's blog too, but she was so generous to count me in.

Since I am doing this through two blogs, I am looking for six recruits instead of three. And what is the meaning of this all?

It's based of the concept of the movie "Pay it Forward" where acts or deeds of kindness are done without expecting something in return, just passing it on, with hope that the recipients of the acts of kindness are passed on.

Here's how it works. I will make and send a handmade gift to the first 6 people who leave a comment to this post on my blog requesting to join this PIF exchange. I do not know what that gift will be yet, and it won't be sent this month, probably not next month, but it will be sent in the first half of 2008 and that's a promise!

What YOU have to do in return, then, is pay it forward by making the same promise on your blog. You need to add the button and recruit 3 people to PIF, and then you'll receive your gift from me :)

My gifts might be hand dyed yarn, something sewn or knitted or something else but I will make it for you and will do my best to choose something that you would like.

So - the first six people to comment and say that they would like to PIF, will be my recipients. Go for it!!

What a great idea! I will make a post on my blog right away. The concept of giving without expecting anything return is wonderful for this time of the year I think. Count me in! :)
