I'm post dating this to keep it at the top until 4/21, the date I will draw names. Be sure to scroll down for current postings!!
A few weeks ago I got a package in the mail. It was from Catherine, her gift to me in the Pay It Forward "game."
"Pay it forward" is a custom in which a creditor who offers the debtor the option of paying the debt forward to a third person instead of paying it back. Debt and payments can be monetary or by good deeds. A related transaction, which starts with a gift instead of a loan, is alternative giving. (from Wikipedia)
It works a little different in Bloggerville.
Some bloggers play it so that the first three who comment on a blog are recipients of a gift, usually homemade or handmade (that isn't essential if you can't find time, but it is definitely the best and most meaningful). Others take all the names who commented to a specific post and draw names. Catherine chose the second method, and I think I will follow suit. This will give an equal opportunity for everyone to win, regardless of their time zone/rising time/bedtime. So......
I will send a handmade gift to 3 people who leave a comment on my blog requesting to join this PIF exchange. The names will be drawn by a friend, not yet designated, one week from the date of posting. I don’t want to reveal just yet what that gift will be, and you may not receive it tomorrow or next week, but you will receive it within 365 days, which is my promise! The only thing you have to do in return is pay it forward by making the same promise on your blog.
So .... Are you ready? If you want to be a participant in the Pay It Forward game, leave a comment here with your intentions to follow through with gifts for three more lucky people. Are you set to play? OK, here we GO .....
