Yesterday I was gifted wtih 50 lbs of glass rods. I’ve never even bought that much glass myself in one order. And I personally, didn’t need it. It’s all neatly bubble wrapped and packed into plastic bins. I don’t even know what’s in there but it’s brand new.
Actually, I was gifted with it before the end of last year but just yesterday hooked up to receive the goods.
In the spirit of the giver, I need to pay it forward and since December I’ve been kicking around what to do. I want to do something really cool. Something out of the ordinary. Sure, I could sell it and donate the proceeds. Or give the glass to someone in need. But those things, while good things, aren’t as meaningful to me, and how do you choose? I want something with the most bang for the buck. The most impact. The most good.
I’ve thought about picking one day a week and working only on beads to donate to a project like Beads of Courage and using that glass plus my time…so it’s a giving opportunity for me too, not just the donor. I’ve thought about having a bead-a-thon and supplying the materials but…eh.
I know the right thing will come to me at the right time…I’m waiting on the inspiration.
I just want to say, thank you to the very generous donor, Paula Moritz, and that at some point, at some time, this glass is going to be used for something worthy, and good.
What would YOU do? Help me brainstorm and spark me.
