Pay it Forward I have been seeing all of this "Pay it Forward 2011" stuff on facebook. I wasn't really sure what it was all about until I looked into it on a friends page and then she also posted it on her blog. The whole original idea was that you promised to make something homemade for the first 5 people that responded to your facebook post (whether it be some sort of craft or baked good).
In return, those five people had to post it on their facebook and do the same for 5 people.
So in keeping with stealing this whole idea, I decided to bring it over to my blog. Instead of just 5 people, I am going to make something for 12 people. That's right. 12. One a month. I already have 3 willing participants, so the next 9 people (I don't think 9 people even read this!) to leave me a comment with your address will be added to my calendar. The only catch is, when you receive your stuff, you have to do something for someone else.
If everyone did something nice for someone different each month, and that person did something nice, what would the world become?
We all know how much fun it is to receive, but I want to have fun giving too!

Your idea is wonderful... I just don't have room for any more 'stuff' in my life, but I love the pay-it-forward idea! If you were to comment on my current blogs for a month :) I would sure appreciate that! And I am going to set up a pay it forward like that... that is what I would most appreciate and know that there are other bloggers who would also see that as a kindness (I think). What do you think?
