YEEEEEHAAAAAAA! (Jumps up punching the air) today marks the start of a brand new project, 'Out Of The Blue' and I cannot wait to see how this one goes down!
What's It All About?
Unlike our box projects, there are no boxes, swaps or registration involved in this. You can take part wherever you are in the world and be confident in the knowledge that your box won't go awol in the post or other similar scenarios. If you've no idea what I'm talking about, check out the previous swap projects.
'Out Of The Blue' is a project based on random acts of human kindness. The gratification is entirely in the giving as there is nothing received in return on this occasion. I want to create a mini-movement (not of the bowel variety) here, spreading smiles everywhere from unexpected places, just "out of the blue". It's entirely anonymous.
Still got your attention? Here's how to get involved...
"Ok, but what happens once my gift has been found?"
This part is dependant on the recipient doing their part. On the little downloadable tag below are instructions to go to the website. Once they arrive here, they'll find this page which tells them to post a photo to one of the two locations above just as you'll have done when you left your gift. They'll also be invited to get in touch.
The exciting part of this project is to see how many strangers (or oblivious friends and family) get in touch to share their experiences of finding your little gifts.
How long does it run for?
This project runs up until June 1st 2012 and I'll be featuring the best of the pics over the next two months here on the blog.
Is there an age cap?
You have to be 16 or over to take part in this project.
not to take this too seriously, it's purely in the name of fun. So, if you know you're likely to take it personally if your gifts don't get captured, this might not be the right project for you. Think of it as casting a balloon off into the atmosphere...
I'm excited to hear your responses. Will you be taking part? What will you be leaving? Show some love and GET TO IT!!!!
