Pay It Forward – reader appreciation

A loooooong time ago, the wonderful Penny at Walking Upside Down chose me to be the recipient of a PIF or Pay It Forward meme. She made me a cool eco bag and also gifted me with a wonderfully-smelling bar of soap. Since then, Isil at Veggie Way has also chosen me for a PIF. I haven’t received her gift yet, but it is a hand cranked music box that plays “Imagine.” Love that song. πŸ™‚

Now it’s my turn to (finally) return the favor. The way it works is I will send a gift (something handmade or something bought – I don’t make much myself so it will probably be something bought) to three random people who leave a comment on my blog. The only thing you have to do in return is Ò€œpay it forwardÒ€ by making the same promise on your blog or some other form. So, if you like this idea and a bit of fun mail, please leave a comment on this post (and make sure I have your email address so I can contact you and get your mailing address)! Also, I have one additional stipulation, to be eligible for this PIF you must be at least a semi-regular commenter on my blog. I’d like to use this opportunity to show my appreciation for my wonderful readers/commenters who come back week after week by giving a few of you something back in return.

Thank you! πŸ™‚

Also, just want to add that I don’t have any restrictions on whether or not you are a US resident for this giveaway, especially since the two PIFs I received came from overseas. πŸ™‚

  1. I have often tried to come up with a way to do something cool with the Pay It Forward idea…i really like this since you can share something tangible with someone who you may never actually meet.

    It reminds me of a project I ran at the daycare I was director of…we exchanged pieces of artwork with an orphanage in India–sort of like Pen Pals–but with no words. No translations. Just a tangible piece of something that another human being created. It might have been lost on preschoolers, but the idea of sharing without meeting can be a powerful experience.

    That doesn’t mean i think you should feel obligated to make something as opposed to buying, CDG! The sharing experience would not be diminished πŸ™‚

  2. What a great idea. It would be so neat to watch this Pay It Forward concept trickle throughout the blogsphere! We could use a little more kindness and thoughtfulness in the world.

  3. Gosh I Love this idea!! You go girl! Keep it up and even if I do not get picked, I plan to do this over on my blog. It’s that Ghandi quote – Be the change you want to see in the world! Woohoo! HAppy Monday!

  4. Lovely idea! I would like to give this a try on my blog in the future.

    Thanks for the information…this will be a wonderful addition to my thoughts from the last few months on how to begin to branch out a bit on my blog.

  5. I’m a regular crunchy follower on blissfully D – does that count? LOL ANd I have an hour without power every week (no thanks to you – bwahahahahahaha).

    Now here’s the part I beg and grovel, pick me, pick me! Give me something to do during my hour without power.

    Last night I painted my toe nails by flashlight. Ummmm….it turned out ok….glad I am taking a SHOWER before I show them to the world to get all the extra off my skin. And then I read a book for a little while and the hour was up lickety split!

  6. I don’t qualify for your PIF because I only just recently found your blog from API Speaks. I just wanted to say what a wonderful idea that is! I can tell I am going to love your blog!–and Imagine is my all time favorite song.
