Pay it Forward

Marmite and Tea was involved in a Pay It Forward gesture back in December. She had received a gift and was offering to pay the act of kindness forwards to three people. I joined in because I love snail mail and I thought sending three people something Thai would be fun (or not Thai if you're already here!) Just in time for Christmas I received this package from Marmite and Tea. She is most clever; I had been desperate to read this book but kept missing it on my book-dar (book radar.)

So now I’m appealing for three people who’d like to receive something from me. You’ll owe me nothing. If you join in you only have to agree to pay it forward, link back to me and blog about it …What you send people is up to you. It doesn’t have to cost a lot or it could cost nothing at all if you could make it. It just needs to be something fun, inspiring or uplifting.

I’m happy to post to anywhere in the world and if you’d like to be one of three recipients for my Pay it Forward you’ll need to leave a message in the comments and email your postal address to 4pmteatime (a) gmail (dot) com. The first three to indicate in the comments that they’d like to join in will be the winners.


And there's more... while I'm on my way to the Post Office:

Because I’m such a dunderhead, I’ve bought this book twice. So I’m also offering to send the spare, never-been-peeked-at copy to the first person to say in the comments that they’d like it. You can find out more about the book here.

Oh I am glad you liked it. I had such fun choosing. I may make it a yearly thing :)
May I put in for the book ( I understand if the US is to far) but it does sound excellent. Getting rid of adverbs especially I do love my adverbs but Mr S King tells me they are beyond the pale :) oh and puncuation another foe of mine!

oh dear! Better add spelling and proof reading to that list of things I can not do! Although why do the mistakes leap out after you press publish?

JJ said...

Yes, Marmite and Tea, the book is yours ... USA is not too far: please send me your address. JJx

Angie said...

Michelle said...

Looks like I just missed out, but what a fun idea! Like the movie. I love that movie.

Michelle said...

Yay! Thanks for pointing out to me that I can still play along in this. Sending you my address now.

JJ said...

Caroline, excellent: number two! I might have your address somewhere but who knows? Please can you send it again?

Michelle, you're number three if you want to be. The first request was for the writing tools book.

JJ said...

Ooh, Michelle, you beat me to it!

JJ said...

Helen, thank you. Do you know, I haven't seen the film...

Lane, I finished it this morning. WON-DER-FUL. Loved it. Amazing story and I don't think there's much doubt I so could've been locked up ...
