Pay It Forward


I saw this sign on May Kristin's blog yesterday, and found that maybe I was one of the first to leave a comment on this post, so I thought, why not play along! And so I did!
I've seen PIF's on other blogs, but never early enough to sign up, until now!

Come join the fun and make the world a happier place :-)

So this is how it goes...It’s the Pay It Forward Exchange.
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.

You all know I’m already a PIF type of person.
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.
Update:
Now I have 3 takers to my PIF :

Elin, Nadine and Pat.

Before 6 months are gone you will receive your PIF gift from me. I am looking forward to make something for you guys :-)

If you read Norwegian please be sure to visit Elin's blog and read the poem about PIF. It is good!
I really like the thought that all the PIF-ers of the blog world are making a positive gesture to make the world a friendlier place!
