Pay It Forward

There are many initiatives and campaigns I would love to take to part of but due a lack of time and laziness I don't. BUT I have taken part in 'Pay It Forward' thanks to Vivian at Wandering Curiocity. I posted the picture below asking for anyone who wanted to get involved. But for firstly:

What is Pay It Forward?
Everyday something wonderful happens and we must show the world that people are good! Kindness can extend beyond ourselves if we are willing to share it.  Times are tough, so ever small thing does count; opening up a door, paying for a meal, helping an old lady out, giving to charity, cleaning up trash, planting a tree, listening to someone.  Service to others, that what its all about! (from the website).

I had a good response, what I love most is that everyone apart from one is a complete strangers it's nice to make new connections. It was easier to get involved as the time scale is quite long and it gives me time to prepare and  not feel pressured. That also means that whatever I do is more heartfelt! I think every I will do will probably be postal.

***I'm a bit late posting this my first Pay it Forward has already gone. I hope the recipient get it sooner I will blog it and each thing I send it out once I know it's received.

Pay It Forward initiative: The first 10 people to comment on this status with "I'm in" will receive a surprise from me at some point in this calendar year - anything from a book, a ticket, a visit, something homegrown or made, a postcard, absolutely any surprise!
There will be no warning and  it will happen when the mood comes over me... I will find something I believe will suit you and make you happy these 10 people must make the same offer and distribute their own joy!
Simply copy this text onto your own profile so we can create a web of connection and kindness. Let's do more nice things for each other in 2014 without any reason other than to make each other smile and to show that we are thinking of each other. Here's to a more enjoyable, more friendly and love-filled year! (remember to inbox me your address if I don't already have it!) #payitforward #connection #kindness #positivity
