Anonymous Gifts at Work


--by rlpickle, posted Sep 13, 2009

I started a project at work where I've been leaving anonymous gifts for people. I've been so excited about it, and so far, I've left gifts for four people. They aren't any big things, but I think it's such a cool thing to do. I've always loved doing things like this.

The toughest thing has been leaving the items and not getting caught. I've left a smile card behind asking the person to pay it forward. I've only gotten to see one person's reaction to their gift. I had to flat out lie when she asked if it was me! :)

I eventually plan to "tag" everybody. I hope people will start talking about it, so they can see they haven't been the only one who has received a gift. I'm hoping it will spread and catch on.
