Create It Forward (Technically - "Pay it forward for creative people")

Ever see the movie "Pay It Forward"? Simply put, the premise is that you do nice things for people and they in turn do nice things for people, and it spreads and spreads and spreads. Sounds great right? I thought so.

I'm on Facebook ( My facebook page if you care to join), and there has been a "pay it forward for creative people" thing going around. Here are the details as they are written on Facebook.

"Pay It Forward for Creative people. I promise to send something handmade to the first 5 people who leave a comment to this. They must in turn, promise to send something they made to the first 5 posters on their status.The rules are, it must be handmade by you and it must be sent to your 5 people sometime in 2010."

So the gist of it is that I sign up with someone who is doing this and they make me one thing. In turn I get 5 people to sign up with me and I make them each something (this is all free). So for the one thing someone gets they make 5 things, and those 5 people make something creative for 5 more people (25 people playing now). Imagine how fast that could turn into thousands of people spreading the creative love! I'm thrilled to have the opportunity to take part in this!

If this is something you might want to do, please let me know and I'll hook you up with someone who will make something creative for you. I have a number of friends who don't have their 5 slots filled up yet and I want to help make that happen so we can see the creations grow and flow!

I'm also hoping to take a collection of photos from people when they've made their 5 items and post it on my FB page. I think it'll be so wonderful to see what just one of us can do by taking part.

If you aren't on Facebook, I'm sure we could do it through the blogs too. So... anyone who's not already participating want to join in?
