Nine years ago I came up with an idea. It’s a very simple one: you buy something that you like, and you give it to a friend. But there’s a catch: your friend, in accepting the gift, has to agree to ‘ye Oath of Giftiness’, which states that if your friend likes the gift, then they will buy another one for a friend of theirs, under the same restriction*.
I thought that it would be a pretty cool way of helping to promote, well, things :)
What do you think?
Oath of Giftiness blanks for your use:
- oath of giftiness blank (PDF)
- oath of giftiness blank (OpenOffice)
- oath of giftiness blank (MS-Word)
* There is an opt-out clause: if the recipient doesn’t like the gift, there’s no obligation to pass it forward.
