**EDIT - This is not a new post, I've just changed the date/time to keep it at the top of the page for now. Just in case someone missed it. I'll do this for a few days, so the "real" new posts will be below this one**

We've all heard of random acts of kindness, of paying it forward.
I am inviting you to participate in a random act of generosity.
Here's the deal. From today until Monday Sept. 29th at 11pm Saskatchewan time (Central I believe) I am taking nominations. The two small plaques below will be the "prizes"

*they are small, about 6" long and 3" high, not including the wire hangers*
This is how it will work. You can nominate as many fellow bloggers as you like, but only one time each. Also you can not nominate yourself. Nominations are sent by e-mail, that way they remain anonymous.
Nominations close at 11pm. I will put each nominee's name on a slip of paper for every time they are nominated (ie: 5 fellow bloggers name you, 5 times you go in the draw!) After all names are in the pot two slips will be drawn. Those people will be contacted and informed that they are the "winners". (if they do not wish to a) accept the prize or b) don't wish to give out a mailing address a new name will be selected)
I will also do a follow up post with the announcement of the recipients.
There you have it, a random act of kindness/generosity. No one knows who nominated them, that IMO adds to the "random" part of it.
For those who choose to participate here is the e-mail to use for this:


  1. Ok...I am confused! What exactly are we nominating the other bloggers for, or is it "just because?"
    You would never guess that I am a student by the way I read directions, now would you? LOL!!!

  2. Melanie - its totally a "just because" thing. Like when I'm in the drive-thru at Timmy's (Tim Horton's) and pay for the coffee for the guy in the car behind me. Just a random act of niceness. :)
    Your reason is whatever you want it to be. You love someone's blog, a fellow blogger is going through a tough time, whatever you want... you don't need to give a reason.

  3. Ok...I was not as confused as I thought I I am!!!

    Thank you Cdn, for clearing the fog for me! :)

  4. What a fun idea! I will get some nominations off to you this weekend!

  5. Oh that's a really nice idea! I'll send a nom! Cool!

  6. This is a random act of kindness!

  7. Hey CDN!! Glad I made time to sit down here and read this morning before chaos erupts again-- this is an awesome idea! I'll send along some nom's for you!!! Hey did you make the plaques? They are adorable. Chat with you soon girl!!

  8. Love the idea. Email is on the way with my nomination!

  9. Great idea; I sent you my nominations!

  10. Aw aren't you sweet! Can we nominate you!? he he! Those signs are great!

  11. What a generous and kind idea.
    I'm getting ready to send you my nominees, too.
