Pay if Forward


About a month or so ago, UK based author Sue Guiney received a gift from someone. It was part of a sort of project. When she received the gift, she was to pay it forward by sending gifts out to three people. I was one of the three people. Today I received my gift which you can see above. A copy of Sue's poetry play Dreams of May, a beautiful starfish pendant reminding me of the sea I love so much, and a lovely book-y card.

So now it's my turn. I need three people who are willing to pay it forward. If they agree, they must provide me with their postal address and I will send them a gift. When it arrives they must send gifts out to three others. I think it's a lovely thing, sort of a ripple affect of happiness.

So if you'd like to be part of this let me know; either in the comments below, by email, or in Facebook. I will take the first three people.

I'm looking forward to it. I've already begun collecting my people and started thinking about what I want to send. Fun!

Am I too late? If not then add me.

I think I'm too late and I live too far away, but this is a really nice concept :-)

Ayo and Automatic Prince you are not too late, though now I'll have my three. Please send your postal addresses to lakubuitsile@gmail.com.

I'm so looking forward to this. Thanks guys!

Thanks Helen. I will go and check it out. I'm currently in the middle of a commputer bugger up with everything wiped away like it was never there. Trying to restore my life as it were.
