Pay It Forward Exchange

My lovely friend Jax, signed up to do the Pay It Forward Exchange. She sighted it on her friend's blog, Home Baked Education. I remember seeing the film Pay It Forward. I distinctly recall feeling so grateful for having a phrase to describe how I was pretty much living my life. The movie was also incredibly well done. . The author of the book Pay It Forward, Catherine Ryan Hyde, believed so much in the concept behind her novel, she started the Pay It Forward Foundation.

And now, I've discovered this little meme floating through some of my British friends blog, I had to jump on board. But, I’m lazy. Below, please find a cut and paste from Home Baked Education about what it entails:

"Let me tell you about it, these are the instructions: “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. 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."

So, the first three people who comment and pledge to do their own Pay It Forward Exchange on their own blog, will recieve a lovely handmade gift from me. I wonder who it will be? How exciting!
