Random acts of kindness are the best. To do things with no motive or hope for any personal gain is truly selfless. Have you ever done something nice for someone without expecting something in return? Or, has someone done something for you just because? Didn't it make you feel warm inside? That is the premise behind paying it forward. When something good happens to you to share that good fortune and good feeling with someone else is to pay it forward.
In the spirit of PIF'ing, Meari of Meari's Musings offered to Pay It Forward. I thought it sounded like fun, so I commented to her post and said please count me in.....and I was one of her lucky winners. It is now my turn to Pay It Foward! It is easy. No sewing involved, and I have have 365 days to send out my Pay It Forwards surprises.
To Pay It Forward here's what you need to do:
1. Send no less than 5 stitching related items per person within the next 365 days.
2. Items can be DMC, other threads, stitching needles, straight pins, buttons, scissors, ribbons, etc. - a combination of items such as 3 threads, 1 pack of straight pins and 1 pack of stitching needles or just 5 threads.
3. The items must be new and not used. Send things you would be happy to receive.
4. If you win, you must be willing to post this PIF on your blog and do the same for at least 2 people.
To be included in my Pay It Forward -
I'm going to draw for three winners. If you are interested in Paying It Forward, please comment on this post. Feel free to tell your friends too. Remember you have to be willing to reciprocate on your blog. If there are more than three comments, the names will go into a drawing to determine the winners. I'll announce the PIF receipients Halloween weekend and you can reply at that time with your email address. Good Luck All!
PS I am just as excited to do the planning and the shopping.
If you haven't seen the movie, put it in your Netflix que and get out the tissues.
