Pay It Forward

Last week I received a fun little package from Ashley of the chic line. I was one of five fortunate recipients of her "pay it forward" gift!!

{The gift tag (probably too small to discern) reads "a towel for your hands + a book for your thoughts." So cute! Love them!!}

The concept behind "pay-it-forward" is that you reap the rewards of a little something from someone and instead repaying them, you pass along something nice to someone else. Thus spreading the love.

Now it's time for me to spread that love! Five people will receive a package from me, on the condition that you continue this trail of gift-giving and select five lucky people to receive something from you.

Nervous about the commitment? It's low pressure! The gifts can be small and you don't have to get them out right away. Don't have a blog? No worries, you can continue the fun by sending packages to five of your friends and/or family.

Interested? Leave a comment on this post. If I get five people, awesome! If there are more than five, I'll draw names. Winners will be announced on Friday.
{And because I have very few readers, your chances are pretty darn good!}

I'm totally in! Some years ago I went to a church that one day handed each person a $20 bill and asked everyone to use it to help someone else... we all felt such a huge sense of responsibility with that money, even though it wasn't much, and it was really amazing to see what people came up with!

That is a fantastic idea! I LOVE it!! I have been trying to encourage my team at work to be pro-active and do random acts of kindness with their teams and it's building such great morale! These types of things are definitely what the world needs more of! :)
