Let's Pay it Forward!


A bit of pink heaven posted this "Pay it forward" on her blog and I decided to play because it looked like fun! I received a some great goodies and now I want to do that for the first three who tell me they want to play! Below are the rules:


This is how it works: I will send a gift of my choice to the first 3 people who leave a comment on my blog and ASK to join this "Pay it Forward" exchange. You must make the same pledge on your blog! Please keep the item small so that it can be mailed in a mailing envelope or small box. So, if you want to receive goodies from me and are willing to do the same on your blog, leave a comment and let me know!!! I will need your email and mailing address from each of you so that I can get your goodies out in the mail, (my e-mail is located on my profile). Oh and if you stopped by and you don't want to play, you can still leave me a comment and let me know you were here! You will only be included to play if you say you want to play and you are one of the first three! LET'S PAY IT FORWARD!

With much love,

Hey sweetie,
It's a lovely idea, and I would love to play, but....the Russian post is terrible - it took 2 months for my mum's birthday card to get to England, so I think that kinda rules me out of it all, I'm afraid.
I'd love to see what you send the first 3 people though!

You are right to chastise me Robyn as I have not visited your Happy House of Haas lately.

Good luck with your contest.

BTW, I can't tell if the kids have been upgraded or not.

I LOVE Pay it Forwards...I just finished doing one, tho, so I will
wait until the next one. They are so much fun and it is always a thrill to get something in the mail.
I just finished a giveaway, too.
love, bj

It's a fun idea.
I have been doing something like it for the last two years and I'm almost done.
I had everyone who wanted to send me their mailing address and i randomly had someone here pick a name and sent them a box of gourmet chocolates from a company that makes handmade chocolates without warning.
A surprize in the mailbox when you least expect one that you don;t have to pay.

The people where i get the chocolates must think I'm chocolate freak.
Ok I am but only for the chocolate covered cherries.
I'm a cherry chocolate junkie.

Robyn, what an awesome idea!!! I would have loved to have played along but I am afraid I have myself overloaded with swaps right now. Looking forward to seeing how this works!!! :-)

MJ said...

Just stick a roll of twenties in the mail for me.

I'm happy with that.

glad you liked your goodies. Thanks for playing. It's fun to think about all the people down the line that will receive goodies!

Hi Robyn,

Hope you were able to hit that curve ball life threw at you back out into the outfield. Your recollection about saving a life was moving. I hope that if something happens to me like that, there will be someone like you to save me. I would gladly repay the favor too :-)

Best wishes,

skeeter

Hi Robyn,

INNER VOICES said...

practicing pay it forward in life is very satiating... cheese gave her tips from last nights work to the women who lost her daughter last week. who knows where it will go... but at least she wont have to think about money for one day...

three cheers for happy house of haas!

Joshua said...

feeling any better?

Terri and Bob said...

Good morning! I see you have plenty of participants! If someone changes their mind, let me know!

Cecile said...

I'm suffering from a headache at the moment, so I'll make this short and sweet. I just stopped by to say hi.

Skeeter said...

Hi Robyn,

How's life? talk with you later.

Best wishes,

Hi Baby,

Posted at the Wild Onion in your honor. Finally, you let everyone in. I think you'll find comfort in that. I also think you should post here and let all these dear, dear friends in. You are so loved and they will only help. You have the most amazing group of friends, so let them in honey. This is something you can't do alone, nor should you be expected to.

I love you, but you know that, so listen to me and hang in there. We all love you so much. When times are tough, just remember all our faces and know how dearly we love you and are chanting for you.

You're beautiful.

XO
