Pay It Forward Giveaway! 2 $10 Target Gift Cards

It's raining hearts (365/351)


I was the grateful winner and recipient of the Pay It Forward giveaway over at Paige's blog, Some Days You Gotta Dance! I actually loved the idea, because it gives us a chance to say thanks to the many sponsors and bloggers who put out time and money to host giveaways.  And  the  people who publicize the giveaways by tweeting and posting on their blogs are also very much appreciated!  So in that spirit, comes my Pay It Forward Giveaway. 

Paige went to a lot of trouble when she sent me my gift.  Inside the Priority Mail box were some beautifully tissue wrapped items which were: some darling stationary items, a bag of jelly belly's (20 flavors), a Burt's Bees chapstick and some peppermint sticks!  Thanks so much, Paige, I really love my gifts!

Now one of the requirements for entering this giveaway is that you commit to also host your own Pay It Forward giveaway, should you be the winner!  There must  two winners and you can pick whatever you want to give. Well, today I am doing just that!

I am giving 2 Pay It Forward Giveaway winners a $10 Target Gift Card!  That's right, if you are chosen to continue this Pay It Forward chain going with whatever gifts you decide to give, you will receive a $10 Target gift card.  You can use it to help fund your own Pay It Forward giveaway if you'd like.  Seriously, have you won any giveaways?  Have you loved it?  So, why not Pay It Forward? Here's what you can do to enter (leave a separate comment for each one): 

First entry is the mandy (mandatory):
  • Follow Dickssportcmo on Twitter and Tweet this: "@dickssportcmo I nominate @xocaisgood for the #startinglineup because she loves you!"     (Can be done once daily, for 1 extra entry each time)  Leave your Tweet link!   
  • Tell me why you'd like to do a Pay It Forward Giveaway
  • Subscribe to my feed with Google Reader or another one that you prefer! (Right sidebar)
  • Blog about this giveaway with a link back here and also leave me the link that you posted. (3 extra entries)

This giveaway ends on 3/31/10 at 12:00 PM MST.  Winner will be selected with random.org and will be notified via e-mail (so please make sure I have that, either in your profile or left in your comment) and will be mailed the gift certificate via US mail with delivery confirmation!  Good luck to everyone and let's Pay It Forward!

This must be "Pay it Forward Month". Our local radio station is doing a pay it forward promotion too. I love this idea! I try to bless others with surprises too, be it either a gift, encouraging note, or ???
Thanks for the giveaway

Would love to do a Pay-it-forward because I love to enter and win things. I'm not sure what I'd pick...most likely books because I have access to a couple authors and could get a book signed to the winner.

Great idea!
