Hey guys not to long ago I was apart of the gift exchange and didn’t receive anything, no big deal. Anyways during all that happening it made me think how bad it would have felt had I been someone who wasn’t able to buy his own throws and has a decent collection. Chatting with other forum members we started talking about some type of yoyo drive where we have a group of yoyoers who aren’t fortunate enough to have a decent collection due to a shortage of money, being young and parents not buying them a throw ever, people new to yoyoing who cannot afford a yoyo, Etc… So with that said I want to gather a group of forum members who wouldn’t mind giving up a throw to someone less fortunate.
It goes something like this
-gather people will give a throw and “pass it forward” including myself which I have 2 throws for this specifically both of which are metals possibly even 3 maybe.
-have people suggest candidates they feel would fit into someone who would truly appreciate a yoyo and CANNOT AFFORD ONE THEMSELVES.
have the candidates write a short paragraph about themselves, while also including what tricks they know and are working on, as well as what yoyo/s they have. (To determine which yoyo they should get )
talk amongst the people who will be passing it forward to see which yoyo each person should get due to their skill level and current situation etc
send yoyos and pass it forward
So if you feel like you have a yoyo you wouldn’t mind giving away while also making someone else very happy please comment below and then I will PM you. I want to wait a while to gather as many people as possible to participate to make as many people happy as possible. No yoyos will be shipped to me each person will ship a yoyo or however many you want to give away but each person will receive one so keep that in mind for shipping cost.
Also if you know anyone who could really use a yoyo and is legit in a bad spot, or can’t afford a yoyo, or anything of that sort please let me know. Besides people’s word there won’t be a good solid way to know if someone is telling the truth about their situation so please be honest if you have a yoyo collection chances are you won’t qualify to get a free yoyo this is for the people who TRULY deserve a yoyo. I have so many that I don’t mind at all giving up 2 or 3
I already have a few people who I believe want to participate in the passing it forward part of this so I will contact them and see if they’d still like to join. Have a good day guys, I will write a more detailed description of everything once I get some suggestions if how everything should work, also if anyone wants to help me with coordinating everything let me know cause I’m taking 16 credits this term thanks everyone!
I AM HOPING THIS WORKS OUT THE FEELING OF PASSING IT FORWARD IS PRICELESS!
