Paying It Forward


The gals over at Success Bound responded to another bloggers challenge to Pay it Forward (also one of my favortie movies). I decided to take the challenge and issue the challenge to you as well! So here goes. The first three people to respond to this post will receive a fun gift from me in the next month or so and all you have to do is comment on this post and then post the challenge to get your readers invloved. Don't forget to leave an email addy so I can contact you and don't forget to come back and leave me a link to your post!

Here is something else I did to pay it forward for a local couple! They are young and just had their first baby a few weeks ago and she is absolutely gorgeous! I gave her mom and dad my card and told them that I would photograph her for free! Her mom hugged me and thanked me! I know they are just starting out and don't have much money for photographs so I thought I would help out in that area to pay it forward!

What can you do for your fellow bloggers and those in your hometown? You would be surprised at how far a little kindness will go! I think I just like to see the joy in the eyes of others when they are given something out of the blue! How much good could we do in the world if we did this once a day? Come on guys, lets rise to the challenge!!!

This sounds like a really great idea. Could it be I'm the first commenter?

I forgot my email address. It is:

Oooh, tell me I'm number 3!! Oh yeah!

I do a lot of that "paying it forward" although I cannot for the life of me remember what I did for who. But I can tell you all the times I said the wrong thing and made someone feel bad! Isn't that weird? I love to treat someone and tell them to pass it on. It's fun!

This sounds great... wonderful idea! Hey wait... I'm number 3, aren't I? How cool is that? I see Lin didn't notice that Lola came back to add her email address. I'm three then, right? :D Do you mind if I post tomorrow? I have to give it a little thought. I am about to turn in, but had to come by first and I'm glad I did.

What a great idea! I like to live my life in this way. Just the other day I was at the party store getting a green tea and the lady in front of me was digging for some change. I just gave it to her. She was so thankful. I just told her to do something nice for someone else today and to have a great day. I'm sure she had the change, hey I've been there digging in my purse.

Thanks Jo, I am so excited about my pay it forward effort. I appreciate your being a muse for me to think about what I can/will do for others. :)
