Pay it Forward

I followed the link coming from Wendy. I think this is a good idea...

It’s the Pay It Forward Exchange. 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. So here’s how it works. I will make and send a handmade gift to the first 3 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 (within 6 months) 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.

I can't wait to see the chain this creates and meet a few new people along the way.

  1. Hi bianca, i've read that book and i totaly understand what you mean. I think it would make a world of difference when everybody would do this. Not for their own well being but just to please someone els without expecting something in return. Good luck with this project and i do hope that it will get it's domino effect :)! the sock on the needles :)
    Take care.
