    FOLLOW THE LINK BELOW TO THE CURRENT BONNET CREEK PAY IT FORWARD THREAD


    http://disboards.com/showthread.php?p=49245044#post49245044











    Help your fellow DISers, PAY IT FORWARD!!!
    Please read this entire first post for specifics on how the pay it forward works

    Instead of throwing out non perishable items at the end of your stay, pay it forward to another DIS family. Sign up for one of the current Bins we have going at BC and use items from the bin throughout your stay, when you are ready to leave add any other left over non perishables you won't be taking with you to the bin and leave with the bell hop at the front entrance. There is a rather large room that is used for storage. Make sure you attach the name and arrival dates of the family who is coming to BC after you so they will be able to locate it when they check in.

    If you PM me with your check in and out dates I will try and organize this, and post the latest here in this post. It will have to be on a first come first serve basis according to PM's, as i know there may be multiple people for a specific week and I am not sure how else to handle that. If you do PM me, please make sure you check back on this post often for any updates.

    I will just list DIS names here for privacy, but then count on you contacting the person after you to find out the name that you will need to put on the box. DON'T FORGET IF YOUR POST COUNT IS LESS THAN 10 YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO PM, SO YOU WILL NEED TO POST YOUR REQUEST ON THE THREAD. YOU CAN STILL RECEIVE PM'S JUST NOT SEND THEM.

    IF YOU ARE SCHEDULED TO PARTICIPATE PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU ARE CONTACTING THE PERSON AFTER YOU FOR THEIR NAME (OR THE OTHER WAY AROUND, IT DOESN'T MATTER), TO ATTACH TO THE BOX. WE ALL NEED TO COMMUNICATE WELL...SO CHECK YOUR PM'S OFTEN THE FEW WEEKS LEADING UP TO YOUR VACATION. DON'T WANT THIS TO BE STRESSFUL IN ANY WAY!!!THANKS EVERYONE!!!!

    IMPORTANT UPDATE:
    Do not rely on bell services to pick up the bin.

    If you think you might have a problem getting the bin to storage on your checkout day, take it over the night before.

    Remove all old labels and make sure the bin is labeled with the first and last name as well as check in date for the next family

    If you are unable to pick up the bin, for whatever reason...please let me know so that we can arrange for the next family to ask for the bin with your name on it

    The best way to pick up the bin is to go directly to bell services where the storage area is and ask for it, I don't recommend asking for it at the check in counter

    Thanks for the replys so far! I think this will be great! When we stayed at another timeshare villa in '07 we ended up leaving several inflatable pool toys with another family and there was another family looking to give away a small hibachi grill and charcoal/lighter fluid that they had bought and used on their balcony....so the items could be endless...though it will have to fit into a reasonable sized box. :)

    The times we have flown to Orlando seem to be the times I leave a lot of miscellaneous items behind, we simply run out of room in our luggage.

    So far, our first participant is March 19, unless someone else steps up who is going before that, that may be our start date.:banana:

    We're leaving on 4/16, so I'll be glad to take care of it. Disneyforus, we used a box last year, but we can also use a nice sturdy recycling bag similar to something from the grocery stores.

    Sounds good! We'll see who the first person ends up being and see what they would like to do as far as a storage device. If I am toward the beginning, I don't have a problem bringing a small tote to leave, along with a roll of tape to attach a name tag onto the box.

    A few tips we learned last year...everything must be nonperishable since WBC stores the items in a room off of the lobby. Also, make sure caps and tops are secure and the first name, last name and date of arrival are visible. We also only sent unopened boxes (crackers, cereal, etc). We did include spray sunscreen and lysol, kleenex, etc.

    Folks, another option for unopened/nonperishable items: Bonnet Creek collects them for a local food shelter.

    We are filling up pretty nicely for spring, so even if there is a couple day lag time between departures and arrivals you should still be able to leave it for the next family on the list. I would say, just check the boards the day before you leave and make sure that there weren't any additions or changes.

    I am thinking that the rest of the year is going to fill in nicely, and it won't be a problem.

    Every year I purchase an Entertainment Book with coupon for the Orlando Area and Leave it in the Room I'm staying in each year. I could never use all of the coupons, so this would be a great item.

    Hello! We are checking in to BC tomorrow, checking out 3/2. If you let me know who to leave nonperishables for, I would be happy to do so.
    Take care, Jennifer

    If you check the board while on vacation, then you just need to contact the person who would be checking in the closest after you (snowangel72 I think)...send them a PM for their name.
    Let me know if you are going to do this, so I don't slot anyone in between your stays. Does that make sense?
    Thanks, and have a wonderful vacation!
