Pay it forward...

Soleil Moon Frye with the help of Ashton Kutcher went to Twitter to announce a contest offering free goods to a deserving mom. The event was organized by Soleil who also co-owns the organic children’s store The Little Seed.

The blog asked for women to send in stories about a mom who needed a little extra help this time of year. “We Twittered to everyone in our community and received an outpouring of emotional stories. I read these stories and I was just weeping.”

She teamed up with Scandinavian Child.

Kate Quinn Organics and Serena & Lily joined in the fun when they heard what was going on.

I got excited. I love all three stores!

The blog received almost 100 stories. They couldn't pick just one winner, so all involved are to receive a prize. How awesome is that!?! They will be spending the next few weeks getting all the gifts ready for these deserving women.

We need more people to do this. Hubby and I have attempted to try ideas like this before. I just think that now we will go full fledge ahead to start to pay it forward. One project that hubby wants to do is build bikes and computers for children that do not have any. He picks up bikes, uses some for parts and if he hears of anyone who needs a bike he will try to give them one. He also has done that with computers. It is sometimes hard to get people to give away items. If anyone has any computers of bikes that are decent and wish to help hubby help others, please contact us.

This keeps hubby busy and happy...so please help us pay it forward.
