Random Acts of Kindness


Just after Christmas someone I know on Facebook started a 'Creative Pay it Forward' status chain.  I immediately joined in as I love to buy gifts for people.  It's my way of showing affection I suppose and I think I'm pretty good at it (if I do say so myself!)

At the time I tweeted, wondering out loud how to bring this kind of loveliness into the blogosphere so I was really excited when I saw that Clara had started her own Random Acts of Kindness post.  

I love the idea of paying it forward, of being a blessing to someone entirely unprompted, completely unexpectedly, from the goodness of your own heart.  It just makes me smile.

So, I am posting this as a promise to send a gift - a surprise - to the first 6 people who comment on this post!  I won't tell you when it will arrive, just sometime before the end of 2013.  It might be something handmade, it might be a book, or an accessory...it could really be anything!

If you'd like to take part please leave me a comment at the end of this post.

The only prerequisite is that if you comment you must blog and promise to send something to as many people as you choose in order to pay the kindness forward.

As Clara has so brilliantly put it in her original post, "This isn’t about money or extravagance, it could be anything from a  handwritten letter to a knitted blanket or a doodle or favourite book…literally anything. The point is to think of others and spread a little unexpected happiness."

I look forward to paying it forward with you!
