Pay It Forward...a giveaway of sorts!

I'm a believer that we can change this world of ours one act of kindness at a time!

"Kindness can become its own motive.  We are made kind by being kind."
-Eric Hoffer

Here's the challenge...simple and sweet.  Someone out there in this vast blog network started a "Pay It Forward" challenge.  I signed on, and now I want to Pay It Forward myself.  So, here's what I'm proposing...a giveaway of sorts.

Leave a comment under this post.  At noon tomorrow comments will be closed, and I'm going to choose 3 people at random.  I'll make each of you a fabulous sunny window star, (if you're in the Southern Hemisphere, I'll make you a wonderful wintery window star)!  *make sure I have some way of contacting you!

The challenge for you will be to pay it forward yourself.  You can do this in your real life, or on your blog, (if you have one), let's just get these simple and divine acts of kindness rolling in our world.

"Just because an animal is large, it doesn’t mean he doesn’t want kindness; however big Tigger seems to be, remember that he wants as much kindness as Roo."

  5. Pay it forward was first introduced to me when I was in college getting my papers for furniture building. Money was really tight for me....two kids, single mom. A friend of mine who was in better off space, but not by much gave me a one time gift of some money to spend on Easter treats for my girls. I felt awkward of course, but she insisted. Ever since then I have practiced the Pay it forward concept. It is a wonderful makes the world seem so much more human. Count me in on this one.

  18. What a great idea! I will also think of a way to pay it forward. I've tried to make those window stars, but I cannot find the right paper, so mine is too thick and the sun can't light through it... but my kids love it anyways. I love how yours lights up!

  21. Missed it, but a good idea anyways. Where did you get the Pay It forward picture? Did you design it?

  22. Crooked Moon Mama...I just took it from ""
    that's where I signed on to do the Pay It Forward challenge. It's sort of the officious symbol that whoever started this challenge designed!
    I don't know where the challenge originated from...I think its supposed to be done exclusively on blogs, but I just wanted to make it easier for people to participate!
