The "Pay It Forward" rules
- Three people will be chosen to participate when they leave a comment on this post asking to join. (The first three will be chosen).
- You are agreeing to post a similar announcement on your blog, and Pay It Forward to three more people, who will in turn agree to Pay It Forward to three other people, etc.
- You will create a hand-made item for your three people sometime over the next 12 months
Here's how it'll work.......
Lurline (Carol's "leader") is going to send Carol and her other participants one handmade item sometime in the next 12 months. Carol, in turn, will send one handmade item to each of the three participants who signed up with her (I'm one of them), withing the next 12 months. I, in turn, will send one handmade item to each of you (MY participants). YOU, in turn, will send out a hand-made item to each of your three participants, and so on.
I know how busy life can be, but please consider sharing some of your talent with the rest of the world. Mathematically speaking (you KNEW this was coming --- hey I'm a Math teacher!)......here's the number of people to be "affected" with the Pay it Forward....
Level 1: I give to three (3 ppl affected)
Level 2: Each of you three give to three NEW people (9 NEW ppl affected; 12 total lead from my saying "yes")
Level 3: Each of those 9 give to three NEW people (27 NEW ppl affected; 39 total)
(one more line, grabbin' a calculator)
Level 4: Each of those 27 give to three NEW people (81! NEW ppl affected; 120 total--just for saying YES!)
What a beautiful example of exponential growth!!!!
Equation: t(n)=3^n + 3^(n-1), with n = level #.
(giggle)---Hope you followed that!
I am looking forward to this and to meeting new people. Won't you join me????
