WTG - the pay it forward thread.

This thread has almost 4,500 posts and counting.

What's the pay it forward thread? WTG = Want To Give. In the spirit of the holidays and BARF being generally full of good people regardless of our other differences, I thought I'd start this and see where it goes. Please try to keep tertiary discussion to a minimum to reduce thread clutter. Rules are as follows, copied directly from the other thread.

1. If you accept the item, you must in turn give away something else of equal or greater value
2. Post "I'll take it" to secure the free item, and PM the person giving it away. This will help keep thread clutter to a minimum.
3. When you receive your free item, post the item that you are giving away (post it in this thread)
4. If you fail to ship your item, you get negative feedback...not sure how given BARF doesn't have an iTrader system like CG, but BARF's also a smaller community and word gets around pretty quickly.

Rules I'm adding:
5. Do not accept an item simply to make a quick buck. I shouldn't even have to make this a rule, but I'd really hope to not see anything someone gives away out of their own generosity pop up in a for sale thread on Craigslist.
6. Make it as easy as possible on the person giving stuff away. I'd say as a general guideline, if they're giving away something that can't fit in a backpack on one trip on a bike, the receiver needs to make the extra effort not the giver - ie, offer to pay shipping or come get the stuff you want in person.


Also, try to make your free item something a wide variety of people want. That being said, who knows what someone else may need or want. I'm reasonably sure anything can be worked out between people if there are items too bulky to ship easily or anything. Also, practical/useful items should take precedence over decorative, but to each his own. I'm just of the mindset that aesthetics/decorations are far more subjective than moto parts or whatever but that's just my personal feelings on this thread. If it works it works and my goal is to simply build the community a bit more.

Starting things off...I have an Xbox 360 controller, rear cowl (dark silver) for an 06-07 GSXR 600/750, or rear seat for same. Also have a Mako grip for an AR15.

So as not to set the bar too high let's value this box at $25
Your little man, how old? I'll keep my eye out for stuff you're selling for a 2.5 year old.

Maybe this is bass-akwards, but I can adapt. I would like the clothes to donate to an organization I've recently started volunteering for called World Impact.
In shortest terms, they set up a house staffed by a family in some of the most broken neighborhoods. The family provides a Bible based safe haven for kids to hang out, grab a meal get homework help and basically stay off the street.
Thee are several in Fresno and the neighborhoods have lots of kids of all ages. Baby clothes would be a nice Christmas gift to these folks.
My pay it forward, I may have already done. A member wanted a stock for a Mossberg shotty, we set a price and I asked him to not send me the money but to do a random act of kindness with it.
If I should, I can happily find a way to pay forward to someone else.
I'm in Fresno/Clovis and will pay the shipping on the clothes via Paypal or whatever works if this suggestion seems ok.

this happened in the other thread too. As nice as it would be to have things taken one at a time nice and linear, I'm all for helping each other out with again the only caveat being if you take something, give something.

Sorry you changed your mind. But I'll still do this:
How about this? I'll donate minimum 200 rounds of the elusive 22LR ammo to whoever wants to take a youngster shooting for the youngsters first time. I think I can UPS using an ORM-D Label but we'll work it out.
