Pay it Forward Thread!
I know these are kinda played out on other forums, but they do seem to work, at least until people start getting greedy, and they self destruct. However, I'm starting this thread, so hopefully it'll work out for a while. Basically, everyone has a little bit of extra stuff for the bb lying around the house. We're not normal bb users, after all. Some of these can be sold, but wouldn't you feel better if you just gave something to someone who could use it, rather than putting it on ebay and getting a few bucks? Times are tough, and it's nice to be able to accessorize without breaking the bank. So the concept is, post one of your extra things for free. Someone IM's you and says they want it, and you ship it to them. This isn't a way for other people to make money off of another's kindness, so please only request things that you'll be able to personally use. In return, the person who gets the free item "pays it forward" by listing something that THEY have, for someone else to get. And the cycle continues.
Since I'm starting the thread, I'll go first. I've got a seidio innocase for a Curve 8330. It's black, and is only a couple of months old. First person to IM me for it gets it. I'll pay shipping. Let's see if this takes off.

I already sent a phone to a young mother whose phone was dying. I only asked that when she was done with it, donate it to one of the charity groups.
Nice concept. Keep it going.

One of the youth at my church broke her phone at our weekly youth meeting (slipped and took a hard fall with her phone in her pocket) After the game I noticed she was visible upset over her phone being broken, possibly getting in trouble for being careless, and not having a phone. (this girl is not one to cry especially in front of others). I had a BB Pearl and 3 year old LG VX800 that I offered to her after explaining to her mom about what happened. She decided to take the LG.
I was happy that I was in a position to be "johnny on the spot" with the ability to help.You can pay for school, but you can't buy class!

Could I get 1 Micro and 1 Mini charger from you? I need another charger for my tour, and I am in the process of restoring a Pearl which I will let go in this thread, and need to charge it, which is why I need it.Brett Meadors
