Pay It Forward Exchange

The past couple of days, I’ve read about a Pay It Forward Exchange. It’s based on 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 will continue to pass it on.

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 requesting to join this Pay It Forward exchange. As I’m away from my home and sewing machine in Canada until April, I propose to send out the handmade items in May. I will email each person for their mailing address and send the handmade gift when completed. (Who knows, maybe something unique from Buenos Aires will make it into my handmade pieces.)

What YOU have to do in return, then, is Pay it Forward by making the same promise on your blog to 3 different people. Unfortunately, this is only possible for those of who have a blog.

So, who wants to Pay it Forward? Leave me a message.

Caron of Michigan Quilts and Tami from Lemon Tree Tales are PIF’ing too.
