The generosity chain…
I saw this posted on a blog somewhere and just loved the idea. Here's the deal:

This is a generosity meme in which I will make something for 5 people…
I will draw 5 names out of all those that email me by midnight Jan 1, 2010. So, if you are interested, send me an email to chadwickdesign@gmail.com with your name. I'll draw five names from those submitted by tomorrow night. I will let you know if you're on my list of five!
I make no guarantees that you will like what I make. No refunds… no exchanges ;-) please!!! What I create will be just for you, with love from me. It’ll be done this calendar year (2010) and when you get it, you have to let me know it arrived.
I will not give you any clue what it’s going to be or when you will receive it. It will be something I made and it may be beautiful or it could be funky. I may even create something totally unbelievable and surprise you!! It will be handmade by yours truly and may be a collage, a painting or even a porcelain piece. Who knows? Not you, that’s for sure!
I reserve the right to create whatever I feel like at the time – that’s it, no strings attached.
I am so excited about this idea of making and giving “just because”!

This idea isn't just for artists--it's for everyone. We're all able to create something precious for another human being. You can do the same.

Whether your name is drawn or not, I hope you'll play, participate, make, and give. Post this on your blog, facebook, tweet it, put a sign up in your office, find a way to be involved in it.

Let's hold up five people this year, creating beauty for them. Be swept into the simplicity of making and giving!!!

Believe it can happen!!!

I did something like this on facebook called 5 things for 5 people. Part of the deal is that the recipients needed to pass it on. I'm ready to ship my 5 things and excited to see what other folks (some non-artists) will send me.
