pay it forward

I was inspired to by Julie over at Belle Maison and Vana at Le Papier to post about a very simple yet extremely powerful way of giving back..."pay it forward."

...Here's how it works: The exchange focuses on doing an act of kindness without expecting anything in return other than that the recipient will, in their turn, pass the kindness along and pay it forward.

I am going to agree to send something cute, fun and thoughtful to the first 3 6 people who post a comment on this entry. [I got carried away and entered to pay it forward from both of them I want to send some of the good karma I have received over the past few months onto some other well deserving people]

In turn, those six will post this information and pick 3 people they want to send something to and so on.

I know that there are a few people who read here that don't blog so, feel free to comment and then send out an e-mail to your friends and family to see who wants to participate.

If you are interested in participating, be one of the first 6 people to leave a comment! [I am going to leave this posted all week or until there are 6 comments]

The little something that is sent can be something you made, bought, were given or found. Just make sure it's something that will make the person smile! There aren't any cost restraints but try not to go crazy!

By doing this, you must promise me that you will then post about this on your blog or send an e-mail and then send something to the first three people who sign up to play along through you. It's a small way to bring a smile to someones face!

I can't wait to send some fun items to the three SIX lucky winners!

Thank you Julie & Vana [two of my daily addictions] for inspiring this post and for reminding us all that it's the little things we do that can really make someone else's day!
