kate5kiwis: Pay It Forward


“If you were all alone in the universe with no one to talk to, no one with which to share the beauty of the stars, to laugh with, to touch, what would be your purpose in life? It is other life, it is love, which gives your life meaning. This is harmony. We must discover the joy of each other, the joy of challenge, the joy of growth.” — Mitsugi Saotome

Pay It Forward

I have spotted this wonderful idea in a couple of speshal places in the blogosphere over the last month or two, and finally got in on the action over at Beachmama's this week.
I love it *so* much, it totally captures my philosophy.

Here is how it works: I will send handmade gifts to three people (chosen at random) who leave a comment over the next week (before the dawn of 15 December, NZ time: hubby's birthday!!) and tell me they are interested in playing. In order to play, you must have your own blog and you must continue to Pay It Forward by promising the same thing to your readers.

Now, as far as the handmade gifts from me go, it'll be *something sparkly*. You may not receive the gift before Christmas, but I do promise that it will get to you sometime over The Sunny Bay summer! Sound good? I think it sounds great!

Remember, I will be choosing three people who respond by leaving a comment on this blog post. The requirements are that you have your own blog and are willing to send out three of your own homemade gifts (whatever you want to make, no rules or limitations here).

So go ahead: leave a comment. Move this forward again. If you're a Virtual Friend, please leave your email address or some way to contact you.
