If you saw the previous post about “Can YOU make a difference” you’ll know that last Wednesday was the global Pay It Forward Flashmob…and what an experience it was!
There were over 70 locations around the world involved, including London, Koh Samui, Sao Paulo, Cape Town, Chicago, LA, Belfast, Copenhagen, Brisbane and Auckland.
The idea was that you take a book that had inspired or moved you in some way, and “Pay it Forward” to a total stranger, giving with it a leaflet explaining about how Pay it Forward works and asking them to continue the ripple.
It was a fantastic day. The sun was shining we had around 150-200 people taking part and we were passing on random acts of kindness…what more could a girl want on a Wednesday afternoon?
Well…I decided as part of the day that I would do a little experiment.
You see, as well as Paying Forward a book that had inspired me, I also paid forward one of my “The Feminine Evolution” CD Audio programs.
But this wasn’t just any ordinary Pay it Forward…oh no.
I wanted to see if I could encourage the recipient to pay the CD forward…and also to get the next recipient to let me know who they are and more importantly where they are in the world, so that I can track the journey my little CD takes as it bounces around the world inspiring women as it goes.
So I’ve written a message in the CD case that reads something like this:
You have received this CD from someone who wishes to share a little inspiration with you.
This is part of an experiment to see how far and wide this little CD can travel!
So when you receive it, I ask you kindly to please do 3 things:
- Listen to the CD and Enjoy it! 🙂
- Take a picture of yourself with the CD and send it with an email telling me who you are, where in the world you are, when you received it and when you passed it on: firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Pass it on to someone else and ask them to follow these three steps too!
Thank you for being a part of this little CD’s journey to inspire people around the world!
…and I’ve set up a page here on the Feminine 1st site to track it’s progress…so watch this space to see where the CD pops up next: http://feminine1st.com/cdtravels/
Here is the lovely lady I paid it forward to, hopefully this is the beginning of an interesting journey for the Feminine Evolution…! 🙂
…and if you don’t want to wait for the CD to find it’s way to you on it’s travels then you can pick up your own copy here: http://feminine1st.com/store/
Come back tomorrow to hear about my SECOND pay it forward experiment…which is even MORE exciting! 🙂
