Pay it forward...and Win a Venator Survival Kit!

I was at the post office today, in line for the self-service automatic postal service machine, and I got to talking to the woman behind me.

She was holding a big box, and this was the second time she'd been at the crazy post office that morning, she told me, because the first time she came in with the box, they'd sent her back home to cover it up--it was a carton that had shipped beer (Bell's Oberon, in case you're interested), and she couldn't ship the box as it was. So she had to go home and repackage everything, and then come back.

Anyway, we got to talking and I had about seven things I had to mail, and there was a man in front of us who was holding a nine-month old baby under his arm, and with his other, he was processing probably 10 different packages one-handed (doing really, well, too). So I told the woman behind me that she could go ahead of me since I wasn't really in a hurry...and of course, she was very appreciative.

And that got me to thinking about the whole "Pay it Forward" movement. This is the perfect time of year to Pay it Forward--everyone is so stressed out, in such a hurry, and so focused while we try to get things done to make our holiday perfect, that sometimes we forget about little courtesies.

So I'm going to challenge you all--even you lurkers who don't post here (I know you're there) to do one kind, unexpected, unncessary thing for someone else this week. Pay it Forward.

And then, post here in the comments section (I'll keep this post open until Friday night at midnight EST) about your "good deed."

For every good deed you post in the comments section, you'll be entered in a drawing to win a Venator Survival Kit in honor of the countdown to the release of The Rest Falls Away!

What is a Venator Survival Kit? you ask.
It will include:
  • a stake
  • a vis bulla (every Venator must have one...that tiny silver cross you see in the picture)
  • a Born Venator t-shirt (your choice of size and style [eg, fitted/baby-doll, regular, or tank])
  • an autographed copy of The Rest Falls Away
If you post the Pay It Forward Contest icon on your blog and link to this post, I'll give you an extra entry in the drawing, too...because, the more people who Pay it Forward, the more good we'll generate in this world, right?

Right.

So, you have several chances to win:
1) Link to this post by putting the Pay it Forward icon on your blog with a link (and then add your link below)

2) Do a good deed and tell us about it in the comments section. (If you do two good deeds, write two comments. If you do three...)

So...have at it. I'll draw a winner on Saturday December 9th!

What a great contest, Colleen. I've posted a link and will post a good deed or two as well.

Today, I helped entertain and calm a crying baby at Walmart so her stressed mother could load her cart and pay for her items. She was thankful, but I think I got the better end of the deal. Her baby was a doll with a cute giggle.

I'll post a link in my blog tonight for you, Colleen.

Let's see ~ I let a lady go in front of me at Walmart. This poor old woman had 2 things in her shopping cart ~ the lines were as per usual this time of year. I could not believe that anyone wouldn't let her go in front of them. So, friend and I had two carts full of things (we're getting ready for a big bake-off) so I actually went and got her and walked her back to our line so she could go in front of us. I mean ~ she had two items; we had two carts. It's really a no-brainer, isn't it?

Great idea! The kind deed I did today was to carry a load of personnel files downstairs to HR for one of the directors at my work who is not in my area. I thought that she deserved a break (we're in the middle of a big audit), so I took this duty off her hands.

I don't know if this really counts as a good deed or not, but here goes..

My hubby returned to work this morning after being home four months due to back surgery. Now.. I suffer from panic attacks and having him home all that time was so reassuring to me. I know he was nervous about returning to work. I put aside my own fears of being home alone and focused on him.. trying to make him feel ok about leaving.

Am posting about this on my blog, too.

I'm letting a friend stay over at my house Wednesday night. She has to be at the airport early the next morning, and she lives over an hour away. It'll be a bit of an incovenience for me, since I'm having a cousin stay with me the next night. I'll be tight on time to wash the sheets and tidy up before the next guest, since I have to work all day! But she's a sweet girl, I couldn't say no.

As much as I can't stand humanity most of the time it never fails to surprise me that I'm always doing something or other for strangers. Of course that's because it' easy to do stuff for people that are in need. lol.

#2 gave money to a friend who barely had so she could pay her rent and buy some food. Also gave said friend tons of food. No, we are not rich, trust me on that, but man did she need it way more than we did. The woman had nothing to eat and wasn't getting paid for two whole weeks! Sad.

My good neighbour and friend recently lost her long time best friend. About a week after the funeral, while she was trying to cope with that loss, she received news that her Mother had gone missing. Soon after, she received news that her Mother killed herself. She told me yesterday, at the mail box....the two of us standing there, me comforting her as she sobbed.

She needs some serious healing right now, and I know that material things won't do it, but I am going to bring her a poinsetta, and hope that somewhere in herself she can find a comforting place.

Pay it Forward, yesterday I was Christmas shopping with my 21 yo old daughter and we wear talking about some of her friends with kids. Now I'm an adopted grandma to a 3yo little boy whom I adore so kids are a weakness of mine. Well a couple of her friends don't make much and have babies and toddlers so I bought clothes for all of them. People in my life did it for me when I was broke so I can do the same for them

My first deed for the day. Driving to work in a sudden snow squall and the traffic was horrendous. I was sitting in a line of traffic thinking about Paul, dogs, work and blogging when I remembered the pay it forward. I decided to let a bunch of people out of the side street in front of me. They had been sitting there trying to get onto the road for a while. The traffic behind me didn't love me but those folks did.

One good deed.

Last night my colleague called and told me her husband had to go to a family members funeral, and asked me what the procedure was for missing out on exam day (we're teachers, so this is serious business). Even though I had the morning off because I wrote the exams, I told her not to worry, I would do her first exam and take care of getting everything covered for her with the office so she could go be with her husband.

There's number one. I'll be looking around for number two today.

Although this might be considered cruel and unusual punishment rather than paying it forward, yesterday I bought a Quick Trip hot dog for one of my co-workers as a surprise. She is in love with these things, as hard as that is to believe. She was appreciative and we all got a good laugh out of how silly it is that she loves these things.

My daughter is in piano classes that she attends once a week. Her piano teacher is a lovely woman and my daughter just loves her. She's one of these people that talks so much she pretty much annoys any adults that happen to be around her though. The only thing that she does for income is teach piano. She doesn't have any type of contracts.

The winter time is difficult (especially in the snow and cold) to make the weekly classes. We had considered pulling our daughter from class until the Spring. Before I could talk to the piano teacher - she called me. Just two weeks ago she discovered that she has a lump in her breast and they are fast tracking her into surgery. The piano teacher was positive but I knew she was upset. She was also worried about her family. The piano classes are all she has. She was afraid that parents might pull their students if they found out she was sick.

I told her that I would continue to pay her every month - whether she was well enough to teach the class or whether or not our daughter made it to class because of the weather. The next day I sent her the pay to cover the next 5 weeks of classes.

Consideration can do so much.

I have really gotten into this idea. Trying to spread some Christmas (or holiday) Cheer. Anyways I've been a busy deed girl.
1. I had a huge box of granola bars in my cabinet. I brought them into work and left them on the counter secretly for the company next to mine to have.
2. My mother was looking for a family to help out at Christmas time. (one deed for her). A "poor" family. My daughter has a friend who qualified. I gave her name and her 3 younger brothers names to my mother and sizes. I then told the mom of the friend that I entered her into a contest and she might win some free stuff for the kids. I knew she would feel bad taking a handout. My mother went along with this idea and the kids are going to have an even better Christmas now.

I try to live my life by the "paying it forward" method. ( I stay with my grams during the week- do her housecleaning and grocery shopping, I always look for opportunities to put myself second, give a secret donation of money to people I think need it over the holiday season ... things like that)

In fact I encourage my bf to do the same, (he wasn't raised to think like that as I was), and jus the other week he surprised me. He had this old truck he decided to get rid of. One night a man stopped by his house seeing the for sale sign. The man was from a slovic country, and had left his country to avoid being forced into the army once again- he was brutalized that last time he was forced to serve. (BF said his nose had obviously been broken and his some of his fingers were at odd angles.) Anyway, the man had very little money, and was about to leave after hearing bf's asking price. I guess bf has been listening to me- he sold the guy the truck for $60. (I'm so proud of him!)

Despite that, you've challenged me to go beyond!

i can't wait to see what I can do to pay it forward this year!

I did one thing yesterday, thinking specifically of your contest: As I was exiting the subway station, I noticed a dad on the as-yet-unpaid side while his wife and kid had already gone through. His wife was trying to tell him how to work the machine ("It doesn't take cash!), and it seemed like a stressful situation. I turned around and handed him my unlimitied Metrocard, good for unlimited rides for one day, and told him I was going home, and he could have it.

My prior to this contest good deed is picking my friends' kids up from their afterschool program and taking them to her house. Problem is, they're in Manhattan and I'm in Brooklyn, so my son and I have to truck into the city every Friday to do this--not always fun. But her husband is off getting some help for some issues, and she is stuck by herself with two kids and a taxing job. So I offered.

The people who live there, as well as the nurses and staff are always happy to receive baked goods!

I'm taking care of my Dad now and it reminds me how hard it was for my Mom to take care of me when I was sick... Dad recently was diagnosed by Mom that he got stroke and few other health disturbances.

Maybe it's not a good deed since it's my responsibility to take care of my own father, but anyway - I feel like playing here :)

The link back is up now and I hope you don't mind that I use my own button that any of you can use it, if you want :)
