Pay It Forward!

I love the idea behind Pay It Forwards no matter what shape or form they come in. So, I just happened to pop on to Jilly's Space and noticed she is doing a Pay It Forward. Then I looked at the comments and noticed I am the first one and jumped right in so I could join her in the Pay It Forward (PIF) act! So... here it goes...

The concept of a PIF occurs when acts of kindness are performed without expecting anything in return and are passed on, trusting that the recipients will do the same and Pay It Forward, resulting in a never ending chain of kindness.
By signing on, my commitment is to make and send a gift to the first 3 friends who post a comment to this post requesting to join this exchange and who promise to Pay It Forward to 3 other persons, and so on.
I am not exactly sure what my three gifts will be just yet, but I will assure you it will be a gift made by me and from my heart that I will send to you within the next 365 days. This way, it will be completely unexpected and will be that much more rewarding. By signing on, what YOU then have to do in return is to Pay It Forward by making the same announcement and commitment on YOUR blog. I am very excited to be participating in this wonderful venture and I hope you too will join me.

If you are one of the first 3 that sign up, please be sure there is a way I can contact you through your blog or email so I can get your contact info. So... Who will be my 3 PIFs???

  10. Angela--I got the package from my win on your blog. The pattern is adorable and I love the little key ring and luggage tag. They were very unexpected and such a sweet surprise. I love the whole thought and feeling and sentiment behind pay it forward. For me, it is one great example of our purpose in life!
