To be honest when the parcel arrived the Pay It Forward thing was the furtherest from my mind. A parcel all the way from the US, what on earth could this be and who was sending it to me.
As soon as I opened it and saw the colours it suddenly dawned on me. MaryLea had posted a sneak peek during her creating of the Pay It Forward gifts she was sending.
This was so much fun and the kids were even so excited to see what mummy got all the way from America from a lady she has never even met! So what did I receive?
This super funky repurposed tie-dyed Tshirt bag. Pretty cool huh! It is huge, as in it will hold alot but it also scrunches down real small so would be great as an extra bag to take along to things when you think you may need something to bring things home in. (in other words plenty of room for lots of shopping hehehehe)
In fact the kids only made some of these a few weeks back in our Green Day activities with our homeschool network and even then I thought it was a pretty cool idea. I'd even begun daydreaming about some of the ways you could dress them up. The colours on this one are so bright and vibrant though, hey wouldn't it be a really cool as a beach bag. Especially since we are heading off to the beach in a few days time for a little break, it will definitely get used alot!
MaryLea also arranged for 3 women to receive 'mid-wife safe delivery kits' through International Medical Corps and for 3 girls in Africa to receive 'School Textbooks' from C.A.R.E woohoo....how cool is that and so very very thoughtful.
Anyway the one and only guideline for the Pay It Forward fun is that as a recipient you must also Pay It Forward.
So you wanna play?
You really do don't you?!
Ok well all you need to do is comment on this post stating that you would like to join in the fun.
You have 48 hours (roughly) to comment. Wednesday night (Aussie time) I will use a Random Number Generator to choose 3 people to play along.
You must make sure that you either leave an email address in your comment or that I can easily find your email address through your profile. Then once the lucky 3 are chosen I'll post here and will email the lucky 3 also, then it's just a matter of waiting and keeping an eye on your letterbox.
There are also no rules about what you can and can't send. Just think of something to brighten some one else's day. My gifts certainly did that for me!
