Yesterday, a friend shared this on her Facebook page:
Pay it forward challenge:
Let’s have fun and spread some love:2014 pay it forward. The first 12 people to comment on this status will receive a surprise from me within the calendar year. There will be no warning of when it will happen and it can be a card, a gift, etc. The catch…Those 12 people must make the same offer in their FB status. Inbox me your address if you are far away. I will find you if you’re local or close by. Help spread some love!!
I loved it! Of course, I shared immediately and got my first 12 people right away. I have decided to go over twelve though. Why not? It doesn’t have to be expensive – in fact it doesn’t have to cost a thing. If those 12 people shared, like they were supposed to….and each of their twelve share…well, you can imagine the kindness spreading!!
Some of the people that responded to my post are local and good friends of mine so it will be easy! Others, I know casually but I will find a way to do it. For those who don’t live close by, I will make it happen. I have a whole year to do it. 12 people, 12 months? It really couldn’t be easier! If you haven’t seen it yourself already, try it. Get the kindness rolling!
