This is how a surprise Pay it Forward works (I’ve borrowed Danette’s explanation, I couldn’t do any better):
I will send a surprise gift to the first 3 people to comment on this post. This gift will be made by me and I will send it sometime within the next year. Exactly when you will receive it will be a surprise ( it will probably be a surprise to me too).
Of course there are some rules in this game. Here it goes:
1. I will make a little something for the first 3 people who comment on this post. It will be a surprise and may arrive at any time in the next 365 days (yes, a year).
2. To sign up to receive a gift from me you must…
