Acts of Kindness
I recently pledged to take part in a Pay It Forward gift exchange. After responding to her challenge, I received a beautiful painting from Anita Davies (see below.)
It is based on the concept from the movie 'Pay It Forward' where three acts of kindness are carried out without expecting anything in return. Each recipient of those acts of kindness then selects three different people who they, in turn, then do an "act of kindness" for and the process repeats over and over, spreading kindness in an ever-widening circle.
If you are interested, here's how it works:
Email me your land mail address, with 'Pay It Forward' in the subject line. firstname.lastname@example.org
Please remember that you must be prepared to send three acts of kindness to other people when you do this.
I promise to create a small gift for the first three people who email me requesting to participate in the 'Pay It Forward' exchange.
I will announce the three people here on my blog.
The three people must then post on their own blogs promising three different people an act of kindness gift.
Sorry, you must have your own blog in order to participate.
Please allow 4 to 6 weeks for me to create and mail your gift.
Gifts can be anything that is handmade or painted by your own hand.
