Jumping on the Creative Pay-It-Forward bandwagon...

You have probably noticed lately that there is a new craze spreading around on Facebook. This time it is in the form of a Pay-It-Forward meme.

Here is the current version of the status message going around:

2013 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, a gift card, a candle, music, homemade something- a surprise! There will likely be no warning and it will happen whenever the mood strikes me. The catch? Those five people must make the same offer in their FB status. Then inbox me their address.

If you ignore the fact that it is written in an awful fashion, it actually seems pretty fun.

I have been watching many of my friends the past couple of days post this, and I have been thinking of awesome it would be to do it.

Today, I finally made the leap and jumped on the bandwagon. I think I'm going to do something special for each person. Maybe cater their gift to them.

If you are feeling generous and want to particpate, just hop on Facebook and update your message status to the quoted text above.

I just hope people actually do this. This sounds like something people would sign-up for and then forget about. Let us hope that I do not forget.
