"Giving Back" Tuesdays

Instead of featuring a charity or organization this week, I was inspired to post about a very simple yet extremely powerful way of giving back...to "pay it forward." Fifi over at FifiFlowersDesignDecor did a recent post about paying it forward and made a fun little game out of it that I'd like to try...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 blog owners who post a comment on this entry. In turn, those three will post this information and pick 3 people they want to send something to and so on. (Due to postage costs, I can only pay it forward within the United States - sorry!). If you are interested in participating, be one of the first 3 blog owners to leave a comment! 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! If you'd like to join in, be one of the first 3 people to leave me a comment. By doing this, you must promise me that you will then post about this on your blog, link to me, and then send something to the first three people who sign up to play along through your blog. It's a small way to bring a smile to someone's face! Can't wait to send some fun items to the three lucky winners :) Thanks Fifi 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!
