Request for Stories of Different Kinds of Gifts
Definition of Gift: 1) Something that is bestowed voluntarily and without compensation. 2) The act, right, or power of giving.
I am working on an art piece in that explores generosity. My idea is to provide a way of remembering the small and large ways humans interact in a caring manner.
I am collecting stories:
Generosity that people have given or received.
- Must have had no strings attached to it and be unexpected.
- It can be a physical item or an action.
- Demonstrates willingness to give or share; unselfishness
Please provide 200 words max about the gift by December 13, 2010. The writing can be one sentence or a page.
- what makes it a gift?
- the circumstances around it
- relationship of the receiver and the giver
- reaction to the gift
- can be anonymous
The gift stories will be used in an installation I am creating and may be featured on my blog. Let me know if you would like the people in the stories to be anonymous.
I may send out a request for more stories later, so let me know if you would like to be contacted at a later time.
Please add your stories to comments on this blog post, or you can request my email or slow mail address.
