It all started with a $100 bill that I found in a card from my mom. It was in last year’s Christmas card. When I found it, I remembered back to its arrival and that I thought it was odd that my mom had sent a card as I was planning on going to see her in person that year, being back in the local area, so to have mailed the card would have been unnecessary. Yet, there it was in my hand, postal delivery. I put it away in a secret place and promptly forgot about it. For an entire year. When I found it again, I thought that I wanted to do something majestic with it, not just break it and put it in my gas tank, nothing so mundane as that. That bill, having lasted the entire year through times when it would otherwise have very much come in handy, needed to become GREAT.
What if I were to give it away? That sounds good, but yet, I wanted it to have greater impact than to just be a One to One to One offering. What if I were to break that bill, into ONE HUNDRED PIECES and offer it outward in ONE HUNDRED directions? Each humble Gift REPRESENTING and REMEMBERING the original greater value. What if I were to mail those Gifts myself, unexpectedly, to Causes chosen to support? Each Gift, offers a Memory of a TENFOLD by TENFOLD back into its Whole Form. What a GREAT IDEA! $1 bills with “$100 AngelGhosts” permeating their essence.
So began my process of gathering up ONE HUNDRED CAUSES to offer the GIFT Forward to. This is somewhat of a Work in Process. I looked up the mailing addresses of those causes and have addressed each of the envelopes by hand. I composed a Note to include with each Gift, telling the story of finding the $100 Bill and wanting to offer it farther forward, and to those receiving it, to enjoy the tip and/or to continue it onward and offer their $1 bill forward as a tip to someone else. Each act of Passing on the Gift, in whatever denomination, represents an act of Abundance and Generosity and it is that Representation that I wanted to HONOR.
I made it through a Hundred Causes, got them all folded, stuffed, addressed and mailed out into the Universe, Honoring my Mother with the Story of the initial Generous Gift. However, I wanted to take it further. In finding a hundred causes that I wanted to offer support, I realized that there are so many more to continue the flow of offering, and so I have heeded that calling. Again, this is a Work In Process [*W.I.P.].
This Project initiated in November of 2016. Although initially Invented and Intended for 100 Recipients, to date, I have 886 Causes on my list, their mailing addresses looked up, with all 886 $1 GIFTS already posted and sent, each step of this process being in constant flow. I try to mail out a few more every few days. I have gone to calling this project “The GIFT Game”. With this action, I call upon TENFOLD BLESSINGS and MAGIC, Utilizing the “Pay it Forward, Pass it ON” technique to Offer and Honor Karmic Abundance in ALL its GLORY! For now, my intention is to reach 1,000 Gifts. However, when I actually get there, I may just keep “The GIFT Game” rolling forward beyond that number as well. There is no lack of Causes in need of Support, to be sure. There is no lack to Abundance and Prosperity either.
The Next Layer of “The GIFT Game” is to start sending out $10 Donated Offerings, then $100 and onward$ from there.
Do you like this idea? Please SUPPORT it! With your Donations towards this Project, I can continue the GIFTS to FLOW Forward. As well, please offer any causes of your suggestion to be included as recipients of Gifts.
It started with $100.
