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 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.
