This is for Facebook users. I am guessing you could modify this idea to use it with other social media sites.
Iposted this on my Facebook status.
Creative Pay-it Forward. The first five people to comment on this
status will receive from me, sometime in the next calendar year,a gift-
perhaps a book, or baked goods, or a candle, music, art - a surprise!
There will likely be no warning and will happen whenever the mood
strikes me. The catch? Those five people must make the same offer in
their FB status. (I was #5 on Melanie's list, my daughter-in-law. I
think this is a great idea.)
A WARNING ABOUT THIS IDEA IN THE COMMENT SECTION BY STEVEN
It is a good warning by Steven but that doesn't change the fact that this is still an AWESOME IDEA, just be sure you know the 5 people on your list or the person who posted this message on their Facebook status. While I appreciate Steven for taking the time to post his warning, I cannot live in fear nor stop myself from acting on good ideas because of someone's fearful warning.I do make sure that whatever 'good idea' I act on, I act on it in an appropriately safe manner. That what my dad taught me, and that is what I taught my children. My suggestion regarding you and this idea is to do what whatever works for you.
