Thank you to Pirano (I hate spellcheck so apologies for misspelling in caption) for his Pay it Forward cover that was long over due to be acknowledged.

What can I say, life gets in the way.

Pay it forward items to go in mail tomorrow.

Discovered a long lost Pay it Forward cover among the rubble here as we look to clean house and head back to Canada.

My apologies to Kewinmons for what is likely a loooooong delay in acknowledging the cover.

Pay it Forward item going in mail on the morrow!

It has been three weeks since britjag has posted a "pay it forward" item. To get this thread moving along, I will post another item to someone on the list. So, please keep an eye on your mailbox. ;)

Britjag's 'pay it forward' card came in last friday. Will post the image here soon.
Thank you for the nice additions to my thematic collection.
Will try to send a cover/card, but not sure if regular mail has started from here.

A "Pay it Forward" item has been mailed to someone on the list. :)
The end of November 4th is slowly approaching. A "Pay it Forward" item was mailed, at the middle of September, to a country that should not have any mail delivery delays from Canada. Can a participant please check their recent mail from Canada (there is a note that states that it is a "Pay it Forward" item), if it's a pay it forward item?

Thank you! :)

Dannick,

No, I am sorry it wasn't sent to you.

It could be just missing in action. :(

I will wait until the end of the week and mail another item to someone on the list. :)

Hello everybody
Pay It Forward
I received today from an anonymous sender, but no doubt from Great Britain, a very nice cover with two stamps concerning the James Bond sonms.
On the occasion of the release of the 25th James Bond film in April 2020, 6 stamps were issued illustrating the six actors who played Agent 007 James Bond: Daniel Craig, Pierce Brosnan, Timothy Dalton, Roger Moore, Sean Connery and George Lazenby.
The cover is therefore franked with two stamps one is Daniel Craig, the other Pierce Brosnan.
There is also a cover from Switzerland from Crans sur Sierre and a postcard from Brazil from Curitiba "Botanic Garden"
Many thanks to this generous anonymous British correspondent

A belated thank you to Derrick for his magnificent Miss Supertest III maxi card from, yes, November 2019 that I just rediscovered as I go through a backlog of items.

Always loved hydroplanes; reminds me of my student days in Seattle, hearing them roar across Lake Washington!

I had previously privately gratefully acknowledged this via email, but now that it’s super easy to publish images I wanted to do so publicly as well.

I will post a Pay it Forward item ASAP.

Stay safe folks.

Received, thank you. Did you staple it in half? It was an odd way to receive a postcard!

I will get something sent out in 2021!

Yes, I did.

It was over the length limit for USPS and wanted to make sure the unusual postcard size made it to you.

Hope you enjoyed this local historic structure. Very cool modern architecture so should fit your topic.

Stay safe, stay inside and sort stamps!

Thank you for updating us on the pay it forward item that you have sent, Dannick. :)

I was just about to add a post to this thread to kick-start this thread again.

That said, I will mail something to one of the thread participants to get a few items going (at the same time) during covid-19. :) I really think that this is needed during the pandemic.

P.S. I have just prepared something for one of the participants and it will be mailed tomorrow. :)

Do we have an update on the, "Pay it Forward" thread items received or posted?

I have mailed an item, mid-March, to a participant of this thread and still no response. :o I guess covid-19 has something to do with it?

Anyway, I will leave this to the end of the week and mail an item to get the thread going again. :)

Cheers!

Well done, Jim! I'll try to get this thread going a bit more active too. :)

Five Pay it forward covers prepared. Will bring them to the post office when they open tomorrow, to be sent to five different locations around the world. Quite different distances too, so should take different long/short time before they arrive.

Hope all of you are staying well in these difficult times, and that things soon will turn back to normal again!

Thank you so much Jim and Henrik! :D

I really do appreciate your effort in getting the thread moving.

I have mailed a cover to one of the participants, but I guess the note inside got overlooked. :roll: But that is OK because I will be mailing another cover to a participant tomorrow.

As posted above, a "Pay it Forward" item is now on its way to one of the participants.

When receiving a cover or a postcard from me, please read the message carefully because it does say that it's a "Pay it Forward" item.

Thanks!
