What a neat idea! I love this. And I am requesting a copy for a client gift. Here's my twitter address:

Let me know what else you need. I will also contribute to your gift fund Just Because :-)

May your own gifts overflow with goodness!


This sounds like a wonderful idea! I'm off to donate right away. Can I request a copy for a friend of mine as a surprise, rather than asking for a copy for myself? I'll just need to weasel his mailing address out of him without him catching on... ;)

Evelyn Rodriguez

Thanks everyone. It's not showing up the total yet, but there is $50 in matching gifts for a grand collaborative of $100.

Nancy, What a great idea to give this to a friend as a gift. You're on to the idea of circulation. No doubt a copy of "The Gift" shall find its way in your hands from another.

Ali, Thank you. If you can't gracefully extract a mailing address, then I can just ship to you and you can give to him (if he's in vicinity that is). No rush. There is enough in the piggy bank now for about 8 copies, or so, to be circulated out.

BTW, and respecitively above if you want to follow Nancy and Ali.

@Evelyn. kr8tr on Twitter. But I don't want a free book either. Send one to a library for me (or a school, or whatever). I'll make a donation now.


Evelyn Rodriguez

This has been actually fun. Three books out tonight. Grand collaborative total of $300 (matching gifts were $150) as I write this. This covers about 10-11 books, including shipping.

Tomorrow: Pending fourth address from another. Then I'll make sure that I send one to Alvar Public Library on anonymous behalf of Rob (

Thanks all!

"The gift must always move." Ever notice clouds, rain, streams, torrents, currents, rivers, sea, mist -> cloud? You can also get a free book "The Gift" from publisher if you act before Dec 15th here. They also tout Dec 15th as Gift Day:

Where is my math? Duh, there's enough in kitty for about 22 books. More names and addresses please. Receiving is sweet part of the cycle too.


E - No need to send one to me...but if you'd like to circulate one on my behalf once you reach the Crescent City, that would be lovely. :)

Great idea! I'm all over twitter at - and I'd love a copy to share in my part of the world!


It would be great to get a copy. I'm

Okey dokey, I'm in. Would love a free copy. Thanks!

(Would like to request that none of my details get passed on to third parties though... definitely want to avoid further accumulation of junk mail)


Lisa Guest

I'd like to receive the book. I'm in Long Beach, California. I just signed up for twitter, as journalisa, but can't seem to connect up with you there. My email is [email protected]. Thank you for this. Dennis Gallagher shared your info with me months ago and I've enjoyed your blog immensely.


Rita Patel

Love this idea. My twitter account is
Thank you! (can't wait to share it)


Thank you Evelyn for lighting the way.


I would love to receive a copy of "The Gift" with the full intention of passing it on. This is a wonderful idea. It gives me a renewed sense of possiblity about the world and participating in it. I came across your website by chance while researching another topic-- seems to be a timely/synchronistic discovery. I am enjoying your writing and of course, the art! A very heartfelt thanks to you and your contributers. I've signed on with Twitter--

Evelyn Rodriguez

Everyone thus far should have received an email or Twitter direct message from me by now asking for your address. If I haven't contacted you, please let me know. The first of the slew have been shipped - the majority will be shipped tonight, Dec 17th.

The fund and the offer are still good through December 25th. Spread the good cheer!

Evelyn Rodriguez

Everyone that gave me their address so far by stroke of midnight, Monday Dec 17th, will receive "The Gift" by Lewis Hyde (except the Hawaii order) by December 21st. Please make sure you give me your address if you've not so far.

There is more good cheer to spread! Please go ahead and tell your friends - this offer good through December 25th. There is no worry about "running out" before then. Where there is a will, there is a way. Rush forward with your hearts and you will shall see the infinitude we've so often veiled with our concept of limits and boundaries.

Cheap scrubs
One day, I would like to look my friend in a local hospital. I’m not alone, but with my friends, many friends. So because of our noise disturb the medical patient, the security wish us silent.
While we are sitting down in the park, a friend ask us he tell why the nurses, their uniforms is different each other and different in work hours. So how many uniform they have? Another friend then stands up and said, if they have many different uniforms, it means they spent much money to buy it. That’s why their have high salary. I cut the speaking automatically then said, they buy the uniforms in big scale. I ever heard that they buy it through internet. The prices are very competitive but the online store is lower.
To improve my statement, a friend comes to a nurse and ask her that where they buy the uniform. In a moment, a nurse was surprised but later she answered that she didn’t know exactly but she also heard that their management buy from the online store, or or is that name. The store is leading on the medical uniform supplied, the nurse said. She continues their uniform design is great I am being cute by this uniform. My friends also fell like me. Our doctors also like the uniform because of simple, soft and air circulation.
When we back home, I browse in internet, to find where the Cheap Scrubs. The nurse is right. I have to see before believe. The store sell medical product, especially uniforms. The first time I have to find is price. I was surprise that the price average is lower then $ 10 USD. The second one is the design. The nurse is also right.
My sister is a Special Education teacher. She teaches little kids with special needs. And in her school, all Special Education teachers, shadow teachers as well as pre-school teachers are required to wear scrubs. They can wear different colors of scrubs and even different designs. I asked my sister why they would wear scrubs. I often see this get up being worn by nursing students and other medical students, nursing aides in hospitals, some nurses, and even doctors especially when they are going to the operating room. I also see this being worn by doctors in television shows.
My sister told me that scrubs are being used by teachers like her to avoid uniforms with buttons. There are times when a kid throws a tantrum and he or she might rip a button from a teacher’s uniform. You know little kids, they think colorful objects are candies so they might swallow it or worse, put it inside their noses or ears. So a scrub is a perfect uniform for teachers like my sister.
My sister had a hard time looking for a scrub set before. Had we known about, we wouldn’t have had a hard time looking for scrub suits. You might be looking for scrub sets as well.
