Pay It Forward

Would you like a handmade gift from jsins? Yes?
Want to bank some good karma in 2008? Yes?
Then read on...

I've just signed up for the Pay it Forward exchange, at Yvonne's Tales of an Arthritic Knitter blog. I'm really excited to take part in the exchange and to spread the handmade joy.

The concept is as follows:
"It’s based of the concept of the movie “Pay it Forward” where acts or deeds of kindness are done without expecting something in return, just passing it on, with hope that the recipients of the acts of kindness are passed on. So here’s how it works. I will make and send a handmade gift to the first 3 people who leave a comment to this post on my blog requesting to join this PIF exchange. I do not know what that gift will be yet, and it won’t be sent this month, probably not next month, but it will be sent (within 6 months) and that’s a promise! What YOU have to do in return, then, is pay it forward by making the same promise on your blog."

I hope you leave a comment to join in and receive a gift as well as to Pay It Forward. It's an excellent way to share some good will and handmade goodness in the new year.

Am I the first to comment on this wonderful idea?! I love the idea of random acts of kindness and paying it forward. When I lived in a large city I would spend any spare quarters I had on other people's parking meters, just so they would have enough time to do whatever it was they were doing. I'd love to participate in your exchange!
